Mr Sven Lundh founded Swedish design and furniture company Källemo back in 1970. Unfortunately, Mr Lundh passed away a few years ago, but before doing so he and Søren Sögreni made this installation at Universitetssjukhuset (The University Hospital) in Malmö, Sweden. The installation consists of art in the middle of the room and Sögreni bicycles on the wall. We had almost forgot about this installation, but came around the hospital for a routine check and were pleasantly reminded. If you ever pass Malmö, you can see it for yourself at this adress
Around three years ago, dear Mr Tsutsumi out of Japan started sending us pictures of how his Sögreni Copper bell developes over time. Here it is, four years after being mounted on the gentlemans blue bicycle. This is how it looks if you not polish it, the metal darkens naturally. Thanks for sharing!
Mr. Clayton Cook purchased a set of Sögreni Copper Pedals, but he had a plan how to make them look a little older. Mr Cook writes: “Here are some pictures of your copper peddles. I love old “green” copper so, I found a recipe on the internet about how to artificially age copper quickly so it will look old! Basically it is a mixture of ammonia, salt and lemon juice. One of my favorite details about artificially aging the copper was that the peddles got shiny where they contact the soles of my shoes”. Nice tip if you want your bicycle to look more vintage – thanks for the pictures!
We are truly proud of our city, so if you are planning to visit just one European capital this year, why not us? We have good food, good beer, great looking people and of course lots of bicycles everywhere!
Visit Copenhagen just upgraded their website, visit and please read “Bike City Copenhagen” which of course also features an article about Sögreni. www.visitcopenhagen.com/copenhagen/bike-city-copenhagen

Danish blogger Frederikke Brasch Nielsen was spotted on instagram with this red Sögreni Old Shatterhand. Frederikke is a running enthusiast and it girl, check her blog at braschontherun.com.
She is also by the way the sister of Danish model Caroline Brasch Nielsen. You can see her here – with the same bicycle! altamiranyc.blogspot.dk
About a year ago Mr Tsusumi of Hitoyoshi, Japan, sent us a picture of his Sögreni Copper Bell, and now he is back with an update. The bell is aging nicely, we must say. Mr Tsutsumi also had a bicycle accident earlier this year, broke his clavicle and a rib…but the bicycle survived without a scratch! This is what happens when you use quality equipment. Thanks for the update and godspeed, Mr Tsutsumi.
So what do you do if you are the caretaker of a property, situated right next to The Copenhagen Business School, where hundreds of students park – or toss – their bicycles everywhere? You put up a sign. And since you don’t want to carry all those bicycles away to another location, you simply say
DO NOT PARK YOUR BICYCLE HERE
IF YOU DO, IT WILL BE DEFLATED
…good thinking, caretaker Mr Nielsen, there wasn’t a single bicycle within 10 meters of this simple but truly effective sign.
