The bicycle is our favorite means of transport in the big city. It keeps us slim, helps us avoid traffic jams and is often parked directly at the entrance to the office building. The situation with the parking spaces in front of our apartment could not be that simple. Often only a parking facility is provided away from the busy street. This means fully occupied spaces, unsafe closing on the adjacent fence or prohibited parking on the sidewalk.
Don’t worry anymore because the solution to this problem has been discovered. Now you can not only store the bike at home protected against theft, but also include multifunctional, practical furniture. Discover more of these clever ideas in today’s article.
In a small living space, bike storage can be a real challenge. But the cleverly designed furniture by the Chilean designer Manuel Rossel comes to the rescue. Pieces of furniture that we need in everyday life have a second application and that is as trendy bike racks. Quite ordinary-looking sofas, bookshelves and sideboards have discreet cracks in their surfaces, in which the bicycle tires fit and allow an upright posture.
Both the furniture design and the additional function could be described as modern art installations. The parked bike is surrounded by other personal items such as books, decorative items, music systems and much more. This creates a nice display that is not only practical, but looks just as good.
Rossel goes on to explain his creations, he says that they should promote people’s mobility. In his opinion, cycling reduces the traffic load in large cities enormously and is an affordable option for everyone. The Chilean believes that parking bicycles in the living room should remind people to use them more often.

In this way, you can overcome any obstacles related to bike storage. The wall bracket would of course be another alternative. But be honest: which of the two options do you find cooler and more creative?
