Bike Shelter is a nomadic device designed for the new urban landscape explorers. It is a trailer, a table for an urban picnic, a bench, a bed for sunbathing, a platform for yoga, a small pet house, a stage for urban musicians, a tent for children and as many things as we can imagine.
The Bike Shelter is a nomadic device designed to amplify the urban landscape experience of the new explorers who opt for bicycle transport to move around the city in a sustainable way.
The Bike Shelter is built with solid wood panels of CLT (cross-laminated timber), prefabricated and digitally cut. CLT is an innovative and industrialized material, clean, with fast and precise processes and, above all, beautiful and environmentally friendly.
The Bike Shelter is an object of undefined uses, open to the interpretation and creativity of each user. Its three wooden surfaces can be placed in various ways to enable different activities. Bike Shelter is a trailer, a table for an urban picnic, a bench, a bed for sunbathing, a platform for yoga, a small pet house, a stage for urban musicians, a tent for children and as many things as we can imagine.
The Bike Shelter is an absurd project, an experimental inquiry around the current paradigm of sustainable public mobility and the use of new technologies. Bike Shelter is CLT on the move!
