A two-wheeler tacked to your wall may not be to your artistic taste, but the Bike Valet by Reclamation Art & Furniture is sure to contribute a bit of contemporary flair.

First and foremost, the wall-mounted bike rack is intended to provide convenient indoor storage for bicycles belonging to urban apartment dwellers. The execution, however, reveals a particular interest in fostering the sculptural quality of this practical piece. The pushbike perches are carefully crafted by laser-cutting steel and bending it by hand. They're available in six colors with two types of padding for customized decor coordination.

Using this system of two flexible braces, Stevel Tiller might have developed any arbitrary form. But the Bike Valet by Reclamation Art & Furniture embodies a thoughtfulness through its unique geometric shapes to become part of the foyer's ornamentation.
