Brought Superior 1800 concept by Yutaka Igarashi

At the time I’m writing this the name Yutaka Igarashi does not yet have a Wikipedia entry. In fact the only information I’ve been able to find out about her is the three statements in the profile section of her homepage:

She was born on 1977 in Japan.
Currently working in the sawmill.
And she is partially color-blind.

It seems Igarashi prefers to let her work speak for itself, and it does so loud, clearly, and with authority.

Among her design concepts I found the Brought Superior 1800 to be most notable, both as successful design in it’s own merit, as well as a contemporary interpretation of the legendary English motorrad pictured below.

This concept seamlessly blends European design elements with Japanese Manga, allowing them to coexist harmoniously. By taking on the task of redesigning one of the most beautiful motorcycles in history, obtaining critical acclaim doing so, while all along working in a sawmill, so Igarashi has become in my eyes one of the most intriguing designers of our time.
