seeking for a way to store bikes when they aren’t in use, barcelona-based company woodloops have created this series of minimalistic wooden accessories, that make the storing of bikes into a featured wall display. ‘bike pin ups’ are produced using wood from sustainably managed forests and each piece is hand-crafted in local workshops surrounding barcelona. the sculptural devices allow people to exhibit their customized bikes easily in a variety of different environments. the pin ups offer useful details such as integrated magnets, hooks to hang keys on, tools or necessary gadgets. repurposed antique drawers and recycled old handlebars that look like horns have been turned into the hanging storage pieces. named after famous pin up idols such as brigitte b, clint e and johnny d, the collection offers a functional, yet quirky appearance. for those who love nature there is also a fine oak branch that appears to be growing out of the wall. all products are finished with natural oils and waxes to add to the sustainability of the products.
