recycled bicycle parts are resourcefully re-purposed in this series of hanging racks by austrian designer, andreas scheiger. ‘upcycle fetish’ synthesizes the ideas behind traditional hunting trophies and reclaimed goods. each object is constructed using various sized and colored bike saddles and brake handles and then mounted on an oval wooden plate. they can be used to hold or hang everyday objects, or also as a sturdy, space-saving bike rack.

 

the influence behind the hunting trophy bike hanger is of course pablo picasso’s ‘bull head’, a ready-made which shook up the contemporary art scene in 1944. scheiger’s hangers also capitalize on a modern public shift of all things two-wheeled. bicycles are increasingly becoming an international societal trend, with cities worldwide — new york being the most recent — introducing bike share systems in an attempt to promote a healthy lifestyle and reduce traffic pollution. worldwide there are bike performances, bike competitions, collective bike rides, bike artists, bicycle advocacy groups and a block party for bicycles, the ‘bike fetish day’. the williamsburg festival, now in its ninth year, gives bike lovers of all stripes an excuse to bond over their unique take on the two wheeled machine. all that has spawned a cultural progression towards the vehicle’s image as a symbol for participation.
