These Space Savers are Made From Repurposed Bike Parts

These bicycle racks are repurposed, recycled and resourceful. Austrian-born Andreas Scheiger designed these hunting trophy hangers using a variety of seats and handle bars of differing sizes and colors, which he artfully arranged on oval wooden plaques. Scheiger got the idea for the repurposed parts from Picasso’s ‘Bull Head,’ which made a splash back in 1944.

These resourceful pieces of art also double as space savers. The function of these artistic bike racks came from the increasing worldwide popularity of the transportation device. Many cities, including New York and Toronto, are implementing bicycle sharing systems to promote a healthy and active lifestyle, while also reducing air pollution. Alternatively, the ‘Upcycle Fetish’ series can be used to hang up everyday items, not just two-wheelers.
