'spread your love' by Hamed Kohan

I cycled to work for the first time today, whoop whoop! It was great, felt so refreshed by time I got to work. 1000 times better than catching the tube in.

I stumble across this article this morning on the design boom website about these amazing tyres with hearts on designed by Hamed Kohan for the 'seoul cycle design' competition. I want them, I hope they manufacture these. My tyres are looking a bit crusty anyway.

'spread your love' by hamed kohan from Iran is one of the shortlisted design entries from more than 3000 participants in our recent designboom competition,'seoul cycle design 2010', organized in collaboration with seoul design foundation.

The tire design features heart-shaped knobs that create playful tracks on the streets.A series of corresponding bike racks are distributed throughout the city.
