Yves Béhar Unveils the World’s Fastest Electric Motorcycle

















Recently Yves Béhar has unveiled the Mission One, the world’s fastest electric production motorcycle. The fantastic looking bike is the brainchild of Mission Motors and Fuseproject, and is designed to have a top speed of 150mph, with a range of around 150 miles. Yves Béhar’s projects have always exhibited a deft balance between stunning aesthetics and sustainable design, and this latest opus is no exception.

A Clockwork Orange















I recently re-watched and read Anthony Burgess's 'A Clockwork Orange'. Both Stanley Kubrick's direction and the rich textured 'nadsat' language of the book are both very compelling. I've included a shot of Alex's bedroom because I think it demonstrates, not unlike many of the other scenes in the film, fantastic attention to the style of it's era.
