Impuls K101

Love Moto

The k101 is a handcrafted motorcycle project by Impuls aka Philipp Wulk and Matthias Pittner in collaboration with the artists Fabian Gatermann and Matthias Edlinger. Based on the BMW K100 the team manufactured two unique and essential motorcycles with the artists. 

Through the complete new interpretation of the bike in terms of appearance and the custom manufactured parts both motorbikes become iconic and minimal artwork itself. The munich based k101 project by impuls creates a new fusion and bridge between art and motorcycle.

The artist Fabian Gatermann brought the whole motorcycle back into 3D and created a set of polygons through manual iteration and draw them back onto the motorcycle by hand. The process of building a bike from scratch with drawing, 3D modeling and manufacturing is expanded back to the computer and a manual redrawing onto the bike.

The artist Matthias Edlinger created an ironic interpretation of the common bike aesthetics on the bike. The common pin up and illustrations ornaments are deconstructed and attached onto the bike in the Edlinger style. Edlinger has a ruff artistic approach that he mixes with an subtle and humoristic flavor.
