The bikes Jens Martin Skibsted created for Biomega have all created a stir and been displayed and exhibited in numerous magazines, museums and exhibitions worldwide. They have been collected among others by SFMoMA, MoMA and Le CNAP. His Copenhagen bike is regarded as a new icon of Danish Design and the women’s version received the Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN award in 2010. Since 2009 he works with the KiBiSi group. KiBiSi merges the faculties of its founders into a symbiotic hybrid of design, architecture and ideation: The production know-how and design sensibility of Kilo Design – the big ideas and large scale perspective of BIG architects - and the idea driven innovation and brand awareness of Skibsted Ideation. To KiBiSi ideas and products are intrinsically tied - the product should be the carrier of its brand idea rather than some designer's form and formula. In the fertile overlap between Design, Architecture and Ideation KiBiSi seeks to spawn a new breed of idea driven design.
