Moth to a Flame / bike parking stand

Moth to a Flame

The problem:
In evening it's difficult to locate your bike and to find the lock.
In places like shopping mall, the bike parking place is not distinctly visible from a distance.
The bike parking place does not give a pleasant look when it's full.

The Solution:
The concept is a light enabled Bike Parking to bring an unique experience.
With light system, the parking place can be illuminated that makes it convenient to locate the bike and lock/ unlock the bike.
The top part is inspired by the balloon shape to indicate the place to park the bike.
The color of the light will automatically change from as the parking stands is getting filled.
