Parallel / Bicycle stand


Discipline: Interior Architecture

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Parallel is a product line of bicycle stands. The main tube contour cites the frame geometry of bicycles as an iconic figure for public space. As a backwards tilted rhomboid, the shape picks up the contours of head tube with fork, top tube and seat tube, thus symbolizing the direction for parking the bike. The bicycle stand product line is being offered in three layouts: “Standard” as a simple rhomboid frame, “Base” with a free standing or embedded concrete base and “Comfort” with an additional front wheel bracket made from a lengthening piece of the tube. All of the three products can be ordered either in galvanized steel or in stainless steel.
