Amid the current craze for things that are what they are, we came across this bicycle bell that makes the point just about perfectly. It’s a single hammer against a perfect brass bell, and the same Japanese firm has been churning them out since ’74. In America, you’ll have to go to Cooper Hewitt’s Design Museum to find it. Because, naturally, it’s too perfect to just pick up in a store.
