Mallorca's cycling topology

In April 2017 Rapha opened a clubhouse in Mallorca—one of the most beautiful locations to ride in Europe. Together with the Rapha team, we designed a unique 3D topographical map of the island. As the clubhouse centrepiece, the table/map allows visitors to plan their rides. The table has been precision milled from Valchromat, emphasising every last 1.2mm contour/step. Each of the key climbs on the island has been called-out with a monolithic extrusion.

To create the table, we downloaded topographic data from the region. We then simplified the raw data—in order to create a more striking, stylised and unique appearance—leaving us with a skeleton of line-work. From this we were able to create the thousands of topographic steps in 3D CAD and a table that is an exact scale representation of Mallorca’s mountains.
