WINNER OF BIKE RACK AS ART COMPETITION



This Australia-wide design competition invited creative, street-savvy designers to design a cutting edge public bike rack that can be seen as a beautiful item of street art as well as a long-lasting, easy-to-use, functional device. The brief also asked designers to consider the Parramatta, Georges and Nepean river areas where the winning rack would be installed...

Part of the NSW BikePlan, the Bike Rack as Art competition was launched by the Powerhouse Museum and the Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW (RTA) during Sydney Design in August 2010, and invited participants to design a cutting edge public bike rack that is both a beautiful item of street art as well as a long-lasting, easy-to-use, functional device. The ten finalists also included: Eyesore - Josh Carmody, Ribbon Rack - David Hashimoto, Treebike - James Himawa Suparyo, Uturn Octo - Justin Hutchison, Type Rack - Geordie McKenzie, and On Yer Bike - Charles Wright.
