Italian designers BYografia have introduced a free-standing shelving unit you can hang your bicycle on that also has multiple storage spaces for books, electronics, and supplies. Designed for economic urban spaces, the Bookbike comes at a time when cities are becoming more accommodating to cyclists, and commuters themselves are becoming more environmentally conscience. PSFK previously published this article about the increasing market for design/cycling mash-ups and by displaying rather than hiding the bike, this unit further develops this growing market. This minimalist aesthetic and dual purpose functionality also evokes the connection between human powered transportation and the life of the working mind.
