Hiroshige Koike of Scarabike, created a sofa and stool for the Tokyo Design Festival where his company is a returning exhibitor. The seating was made using bicycle seats from the bicycle line’s production. The seating was later used in a public space to restate the company’s vision of a direct solution for the best approach to design.

After all, a bicycle seat is pretty basic.

Japan’s Scarabike uses a minimalist concept based on functionality. It does not have multiple speeds. It is not a mondo-kick-butt extreme sports machine.

This bike IS basic, practical and elegant. Designs are customized to express the personalities of their users and the functions they wish to carry out. Stats for Bicycle Seat Furniture Trending: Older & Warm
