Social Street Furniture

bike standWith the growing popularity of bicycles we are seeing a rejuvenation in bicycle support design such as the car shaped bike rack by Adrian Rovero.

As Toronto struggles with profiting from its street furniture policies Netherlands based design studio Himom, the team of Jeroen Bruls and Krijn Christiaansen, have reasserted the role of street furniture as a social space. The Heklucht, a combination bike stand and pump is made of stainless steel that shines brightly against the dull, grey of city sidewalks.

The goal of the project is to stimulate an interaction between neighbours, while pumping up the tires of their bicycles.
