Awesome Standalone Bike Rack

http://www.heklucht.nl/

The product has been conceived for an art project in Ypenburg (a newly build neighborhood in the Netherlands). Eight products will be placed in front of eight houses. The goal of the project is to stimulate an interaction between neighbours, while pumping up the tires of their bicycles.

I don’t know if I quite believe in the stimulating of conversation between bike owners but I think its an awesome idea. It would be very handy to have a rack that I could also pump my tires up at. And a public one is even better. The thing is it doesn’t look like it has a pressure gauge on it which would be really handy.

The design of this bike rack is from an amateur but still looks really good, eight of them are going to get placed. I still think that I could build a better bike rack. Although the chrome finish looks really nice. It doesn’t look like it could hold that many bikes unfortunately.
