Vadolibero (Italy) - Press Release: The Vertik Satin - a new mineral glow.
After the great success of the space silver and glittering black models, we are proud to introduce the new VERTIK Satin. The smartest bike rack ever - that stores the machine upright and doubles as a stylish floor lamp - wears a mineral bronze glow. Glorious.
The launch of the Vertik in 2018, in their silver space and matte black versions, has been a huge success. Now we are ready to present a new special version: VERTIK Satin. A subtle, warm bronze finish, hand-varnished, adds an eye-catching mineral glow to the unique bike rack. A perfect blend of design and functionality, it stores the bicycle upright saving a lot of space. And it doubles as a stunning floor lamp that illuminates the room with a pleasant light.
A luminous sculpture:
VERTIK Satin's stem - shaped as our handlebar logo - is made of aluminium on one side and plexiglass on the other half, illuminated by a LED string: it casts a dimmable neutral light in the surroundings, highlighting the beauty of the bicycle.
It fits all bicycles:
VERTIK's revolving dome-shaped base has a recess in the middle, designed to fit all kinds of wheels, from track bikes' to MTB's. A spheric cap embellishes the stem's junction, enhancing the base flexuous rounded shape.
The swiveling base:
Its base, made of bronze hand-varnished rigid polyurethane, sits on a revolving apparatus: it allows to direct the lampshade according to your needs. And it makes it easier to park the bike, you just swivel it to place the wheel and then you orientate it in the desired position.
Easy to use:
The first time you use the VERTIK, you set the height of the provided leather covered metal pin that supports the fork. Once the back wheel is placed in the base groove, you just lift your bike upright and determine the correct position. Then you screw the pin in the threaded hole, once for all.
The leather strap:
Before screwing the pin in the threaded hole, you tuck it in the leather fork strap, that is provided with several automatic buttons. You just wrap the strap around the fork and close the button. Thanks to its adjustable length, it securely blocks all kind of bikes.
Use your finger:
A touch sensor switch let you dimmer the floor lamp brightness. You tap on it to switch the VERTIK on and off, while you can dimmer its luminosity by pressing the sensor with your finger. When the floor lamp is switched on, a luminous blue dot points out the sensor.
100% made in italy:
As all creations by Vadolibero, the VERTIK is produced by the well-known Italian furniture supplier chain, in the heart of the high-end design district. Skilled craftmanship and premium materials make it a unique product meant to last a lifetime.
