Milestone is a clever minimal storage solution for those of us who park bikes indoors. Designed by Japanese trio Mile, the piece is made of marble and comes in custom sizes. Each made-to-order cube is fitted perfectly to a specific bike. And when you are not using it, Milestone can be displayed as a nice sculptural object or simply stored away.
We, urban dwellers, constantly struggle to come up with compact and functional bike storage. This unusual piece goes beyond simply providing a place for your two-wheeled friend, it puts your bike to work! Created by Store Muu Design Studio, the PIT IN bike desk utilizes the bike saddle, turning it into a chair. Made entirely from plywood, the piece is fairly light and easily movable. Skeptics might argue that a bike seat makes the most uncomfortable chair imaginable. However, if you are not planning to write a novel and just want to take a coffee break and check emails, the PIT IN desk will serve you well.
People living in a megapolis love their bikes. The problem is – ‘big city’ often means ‘small apartment.’ That is why our beloved two-wheeled companions either sit in a storage room gathering dast or get in the way of any basic motion. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could put your bike on the shelf, like a book, and take it from it only when you need it? Well, this exact idea inspired Bike Shelf, created by the San-Francisco based designer Chris Brigham (aka Knife and Saw). The piece is made from walnut or ash and can be attached to the wall via a steel rod mount. The flat surface on top can serve as an actual book shelf or provide storage for bike accessories and other small items.
