Description from Fabian Gatermann "When Philipp Wulk and Matthias Pittner asked me to develop a new artistic motorcycle concept with them, I had to invest a lot of time to research about the common aesthetics and principles in motorcycling and to understand what it is all about. When I first thought about the process of making a motorcycle I defined following steps:
sketching and modelling (1) bringing the sketches to 3D (2) producing the parts with the machines (3) My thought was to add something to this process. First I scanned the motorcycle back into 3D and calculated polygons out of it (4). Then I modified the structure again and I sketched it manually back onto the motorcycle (5). Through the addition or the continuation of the process I think the motorcycle itself can tell a new story about itself and add a new aesthetic form to the motorcycle culture." The BMW K101 is a new version of the old BMW K100, re-imagined by German studio Impuls, Fabian Gatermann and Matthias Edlinger.
