‘bikers rest’ by marcus abrahamsson for nola



traffic lights are annoying to motorists and cyclists alike. from within the comfort of a car, waiting at a red light
is a matter of keeping a foot on the brake, but for cyclists, it can be a delicate balancing act – cyclists need to stay
upright to quickly wheel out of the way of cars when the light turns green.


the ‘bikers rest’ bollard for nola by swedish designer marcus abrahamsson gives cyclists a footrest to lean against
and a handle to hold on to while waiting for the light to change. the metal mesh insert on the footrest provides a grip
to push off from, while the handle helps the cyclist maintain an upright position and contact with the saddle.
crafted from tubular steel and extruded metal, the pillar coordinates well with most features in the urban landscape.
