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
Swiss clothing company NILE used some Sögreni accessories for their latest catalogue, and also shot a video in the city. See it for glimpses of what makes our city so great: the water, the buildings and atmosphere – and the bicycles! Watch it here
NILE puts it like this – now is the time to train your German: “Ein inspirierendes Date mit der Hauptstadt im Norden. Das Nebeneinander von historischen Gebäuden und moderner Architektur hat uns fasziniert. Ist es doch der perfekte Laufsteg für den NILE Herbst. Mit Vintage und Modernität. Mit Natur und Urbanität. Mit Kultur und Architektur. Mit Wasser und frischer Luft. Mit Bike und Walking. Mit Easy-going à la Dänemark. Mit Eat&Drink. Mit Green und Organic. Mit viel Handwerk und Design. NILE meets Copenhagen”.
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!
Senor Rojas from Peru came by the store the other day to pick up his brand new Young Shatterhand painted in a bright orange colour. He had choosen to add a La Rotunda luggage carrier, very conveniently placed behind the saddle. His daughter Marieta followed on the first trip on a Old Shatterhand from the store – it is always more pleasant to bicycle together. We wish you all the best!
The other day, a man knocked on the door at Skt Peders Stræde and said that he had a Sögreni bicycle that needed a small service check before the upcoming summer season. “Of course” we replied and got outside to see the patient. And there it was: a mid-80s Classic Sögreni Racer in excellent condition, still running fine.
Please notice that is was equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record crankset, shifters and other small parts – all original and all 100% functional. Quality never goes out of style, and we are certain that this beauty will be running for another 30 or so years.
Currently, we do not sell Sögreni Racers as a part of the inventory found in the webshop, but we can of course build any bicycle you are dreaming of – including Campagnolo parts. Just come by the shop or give us a call.
Seattle is known for a lot of things: the Space Needle, Starbucks Coffee and the Boeing factories in Renton. And now also for one of the sleekest bicycles in the state of Washington. It belongs to Mr. Mark Williams, who ordered the Sögreni Pedals in aluminium + aluminium a while ago for his Bianchi bicycle. Looks great, thanks for sharing!
Danish photographer Dennis Stenild came by the store together with two young models to borrow a few Sögreni bicycles for a photoshoot. This was the result, and the next time you sit comfortably in your seat heading for Frankfurt, New York or Rio de Janeiro and you fly with Lufthansa, the inflight magazine in the seatpocket in front of you just might contain these pictures, as they were shot for the Lufthansa Magazine.
Phil from San Francisco wrote us the other day: “I finally had time to install a new custom bell that I got from your shop on a recent visit to Copenhagen. We loved visiting your city and touring around on bikes! Thanks for the memory that I can now use on my daily commute to work”. What a beautiful combination, and especially the chain is a nice touch. Thanks for sharing, Phil!
