Keep calm and ride on!
Leave the car at home
As part of European Mobility Week, we‘ve unveiled our new Parklet concept. Parklet is an optional extra available for various products from our bench, bicycle stand, planter and table ranges, usually designed for one or two parking places. This urban planning solution is growing more popular around the world, as it offers cities a new dimension and gives their citizens a place to relax.
The need for free and fast movement around cities has led to the development of a network of cycle paths, and, in turn, supplementary furniture. Bicycle stands have become functional sculptures, objects which blend with their surroundings while also giving them a whole new purpose. Like the full-stop at the end of a sentence. Our work in the public realm doesn’t end with benches. We think for everyone who spends time on the move outdoors. Take a closer look at our collection for cyclists:
Even prettier when no-one’s around. This is Elk.
The minimalistic design of the Elk bicycle stand plays on the outline of a deformed ellipsis firmly planted on the pavement. Its clean aesthetic makes it easy to incorporate into any project, whether the architecture is historical or contemporary. If its form wasn’t provocative enough, you could even add colour to it. There’s no way you’d overlook it. It serves and stands out.
The cycle has closed. This is Gomez.
A bicycle stand in a neat circular form, composed of a pair of materials: a galvanised steel frame on the inside, with an external coating of durable rubber to protect against damage. The no-frills ring, secured to the ground, functions perfectly in any architectural context and in any possible arrangement — be that as a standalone installation, in small groups, or in long rows, where the circular shapes interplay in particularly interesting ways.
Agreeably precise. This is Edgetyre.
A simple bicycle stand with severe geometry and the clear goal of providing quality infrastructure for cyclists. Suitable for use both inside shelters and out, and available in a range of shape options. The upper horizontal element is covered with durable rubber, which protects the finish on bicycles parked there.
Charging, storage, peace of mind. This is eBlocq.
Six lockable boxes are built into the eBlocq bench. There is no ungainly cupboard — in its place is a multifunctional seat. This product embodies the smart cities concept thanks to its sleek and intelligent design.
In the city, this will come in particularly handy for anyone who comes by e-bike to sort something out at the office, while serving everyone else equally well as a regular bench. In schools, sports facilities and hotels, and in restaurants near cycleways too, it can become an integral part of local e-mobility infrastructure. The Bikeblocq bicycle stand from this range is inclined at the same angle as the legs of the bench. Bikeblocq’s simple frame is completed with a horizontal hardwood element to securely support a bicycle, which can be parked on either side.
Get inspired by our projects. Every detail has been considered, including cyclists and their comfort.
Good design isn’t for a gallery — it’s for life.
