Cityracks competiton

We wanted to expand the scope of our furniture design beyond the home and entered the recent CityRacks competition. We sought to engage the entire city in the design of a new bike rack. We researched the behaviors of cyclists and everyday pedestrians to come up with a hybrid bike rack system that provides customizable bike parking and seating areas. In keeping with New York's PlaNYC and the One Million Trees initiative, we incorporated a planter for local greenery. See the images below for some of the thinking behind the rack.
