margus triibmann: tulip fun fun and grazz bike racks

‘tulip fun fun’ and ‘grazz’ bike racks by margus triibmann



margus triibmann of estonian design studio keha3 has created two bike racks, ‘tulip fun fun’ and ‘grazz’. made from flexible elastic, both systems accommodate multiple directions of bike placement as well as various heights and frame types. drawing from tulip and grass fields, the repeating forms create an artificial barrier that reinserts the versatility of nature into the urban environment. the racks can be affixed to the ground by using wedge anchors or by casting the components directly into concrete.

‘grazz’ is made from plastic covered metal cables, with metal loops at their ends for attaching locks. both the structure’s protective plastic and elastic form help to protect bikes from scratches.

  • Wouldn’t it be possible to saw through these bike racks … and then free the bike? That’s the only issue I can think of! Truly think these are wonderful and would certainly make a great addition to any urbanscape

    Arielle says:
  • Why not? These are excellent. Go ahead and make them, you have a hit!

    charles says:
  • the designer clearly doesn’t own a bike. best racks are simple upside-down ‘U’s
