The Bike Hanger is a project based in the city of Seoul, Korea and is the brainchild of Manifesto Architecture, an award winning design firm based in New York.
Apparently London and New York have already booked some.
The Bike Hanger can store up to 15 bikes and can be installed on the side of a building using the vertical space and freeing up the pavements.
Its canopy is made of recycled plastic bottles and the frame is made of recycled stainless steel and carbon frame. It is completely man-powered (pedal power), therefore using 100% clean energy.
I believe it will also discourage thieves who wouldn’t dare ‘pedal’ a bicycle down to steal a wheel or a saddle (although in Italy I’m sure they would consider it).
