The Commuter Bike Rack Adds Equipment to Interior Organization

— July 19, 2012 — Autos
There is great value to a solution that brings bicycles into close-packed apartments where hallways and balconies aren't the ideal places to store your two-wheeler. The Commuter Bike Rack is a piece of furniture that easily orients and supports your conveyance. It does so in a vertical position so that it reduces required real estate in small city interiors.

Urbanspace Interiors with Nihir Shah and Payam Sarabi conceived this clever storage system that combines a shelf and a sturdy bicycle lock. Bright yellow powder-coated steel is assembled into a tall flat plane, installed with a tire clutch, while the other side features three horizontal surfaces for stashing your possessions. The Commuter Bike Rack is ideal for placement right at the entry to your flat where you can place your bag, keys and helmet down on the walnut shelves and take your bicycle out with little stress.
Trend Themes
1. Vertical Storage - The trend for vertical storage systems is increasing, providing unique and space-saving storage solutions for small urban interiors.
2. Multi-functional Furniture - The trend for multi-functional furniture provides disruptive innovation opportunities for small-space saving, such as combining bike racks with shelves and locks.
3. Powder-coated Steel - Powder-coated steel is a rising trend in furniture manufacturing, due to its durability and aesthetic appeal.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture - The furniture industry can integrate the trend for multi-functional furniture and vertical storage to provide unique solutions to small-space living challenges.
2. Bicycles - Bicycle manufacturers and retailers can add value to their products by designing and marketing them as easy to store and integrate with other decor.
3. Home Decor - Home decor companies can incorporate the trend towards vertical storage and multi-functional furniture in their product lines to appeal to trend-conscious consumers.
