Unimpressed with the current design of bike racks, The Federal Inc. created a colorful alternative that demonstrates both form and function. The Loop ring does away with harsh-looking steel structures and instead uses a durable rubber for support.

Staying consistent with current installation methods, the rack features a steel base that can be easily anchored into any surface. As an added security bonus, the internal steel chain prevents bike thieves from slashing the loop.

Extremely straightforward in design, this modern bike rack is a smart choice for cities that are trying to revitalize their urban scheme.

The Loop ring is still in development, but the studio is already scouting out potential locations to install prototypes.
