Bike meets West: Great Upcycable Theme
I was doing some research and came across this very cool design conept. I love how it gives resembles a hunting trophy and it is so functional at the same time.
Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger has unveiled a project which he describes as an “upcycle fetish.” Incorporating used bicycle pieces like the bike saddle and brake handle with oval wooden plates, Scheiger presents a series of hanging racks that’s inspired by Pablo Picasso’s bull head sculptures while nodding towards traditional hunting trophies.
The racks are both functional and quirky, bringing a decoration synonymous with quaint households to the modern era. Aside from being decorative, the hangers can also be used to suspend everyday objects.
I needed a bicycle hanger. And then I needed a hanger for bicycle caps and while I was on it, something to hang my umbrella unto. And when left bare I see a tribute to my fetish, the bicycle.
