In many cities there never seems to be ample space to sit down, nor enough places to park your bicycle. The installation of the Ruota_Lo System would solve this problem instantly, given that it performs both functions quite effectively.

The setup is very simple, involving the arrangement of several Ruotolos in a row. Each metal mechanism incorporates a ratchet to help fix the front wheel of a bike in place on one side, while rotating a narrow seat to an accommodating angle on the other. A bench can be formed when a series of adjacent bike stands are snapped into use so that the Ruota_Lo System by Rosa Topputo and D'Arc.Studio fosters a friendly urban environment.
