The Copenhagen Bike Share System would be a futuristic addition to the city, not for its function, but for its look. This cycle system introduces a completely new appearance to the growing urban staple. Instead of typical bike stands and bikes, there is a sunken aesthetic to this design.

Conceived by architecture and design studio Rafaa, the Copenhagen Bike Share System is incredibly interconnected as well. Through the use of GPS and W-Lan, it works to avoid conflicts while keeping tabs on every single bicycle in the system.

Through this concept, Rafaa hopes to increase city bikers from 37% to 50% by 2015. This is an attractive way to entice individuals to bike instead of drive, and decrease their carbon footprint.
