Heklucht Bikestand + Pump


The Heklucht Bikestand is a place to lock up your bike combined with a bike pump to add air to your tires.  The idea came out of a neighborhood revitalization project in Ypenburg, The Netherlands.  The project's aim was to bring neighbors together in an interactive way.  The bike stand itself has a nice utilitarian functionality to it.  Putting the bike stand in front of houses creates an interesting but unnecessary element to the design story.
