Biography

My story began with the production of a folding bike. I wanted to keep my office wear clean, so decided to build a chainless commuter bicycle equipped with carbon belt drive system. The idea to upcycle the spare parts not used for the bike was the first step... I designed the very first desk lamp when my daughter started school. Some friends asked me to do the same for their kids so I started to make them in different colours.
Funded on Indiegogo
The bike desk lamp had a crowdfunding campaign on the Indiegogo platform in Q1-Q2 and raised $10,198 by 62 backers.
Since then Industrial Kid became the expert of indoor lighting inspired by bikes. In 2015 a client bought a desk lamp. He has a creative agency and wanted me to develop a ceiling lamp system for his office. The prototype has been approved after 3 months’ development. As the organization grew, I designed and installed complete lighting solutions in Budapest, Bratislava, Krakow and Prague.
The bike desk lamps sold in 19 countries all over Europe plus in the United States. The next destination in Q1 2018 is Johannesburg, South Africa.

Bike me home – Desk lamps inspired by bicycles
Riding a bicycle represents freedom, fun and fresh air – it’s like being a kid again. Why not bring this feeling home? Industrial Kid desk lamps give the same fresh and sporty spirit to everyone’s room and life.
Industrial Kid’s bicycle-inspired, contemporary design lamps offer the customers the freedom of choice by participating in the creative process. Desk lamps made from bicycle parts combined with the soft touch of wood create a special atmosphere at home or in the office. Each piece is unique because individual owners customize the lamp by playing with the colour of the spare parts.
Spare parts such as brake levers, grips, Bowden cable housing and stem available in 10 different colours to compliment any interior, including kiwi lime green, strawberry smoothie and chocolate brown. The customizer site allows you to combine your favourite colours for an even more personal experience. The economic LED bulb can be switched on and off with a gentle pull of the brake levers.
Peter Belso’s designers comment: “In the short term, we aim to offer our customers different shapes such as road bike bars and brake levers or vintage style and develop the customizer platform where people can combine every style with every colour. Longer term, we want to create a wider range of products such as pendant lamps or wall lamps. It is a fusion of our lamp design concept with people’s own ideas to create something entirely new. This is our definition of product design.”
The bike desk lamp was originally created by Peter as a solution when his daughter started school in 2013 and did not like sitting at the desk. Some friends asked him to create a lamp for their kids so he started to make them in different colours. In 2015 Peter founded Industrial Kid to improve the original design and launch the bike desk lamp internationally.
