Furniture Doubles As Bike Racks To Save Space In Tiny Apartments

Published 5 years ago

Parking a bicycle outside is a chore, but what do you do if you live in a small apartment? Buy some furniture that doubles as a bicycle rack! Designed by Manuel Rossel, these couches, bookcases and sideboards look like modern furniture but for the slots cut out on top. You put your bicycles wheels in them and presto – it’s both a modern art installation, and a way to keep your bicycle together with you books, CDs, souvenirs and porcelain cats.

Manuel Rossel is a Chilean designer and this furniture line is only currently available in Chile. “People who drive lose all the benefits of physical activity,” Rossel told Fast Company. “Biking also leads to economic savings and helps the decongestion and decontamination of cities.” He hopes that putting bicycles in the living room will be a visible reminder of the benefits of two wheeled transportation.
