The public space is becoming cluttered, filled with functional necessities such as parking. Bicycle racks are a particular eyesore. Even when not in use, they get in the way, creating physical and visual ‘noise’. ALIGN, by Milou Bergs, is a sleek alternative for more serenity. It pops up only when needed. Like a see-saw, the front wheel sinks down, raising a bracket to hold and lock the back wheel. When the bike is removed, it disappears entirely, hidden flat inside the pavement. This flexibility means that the public space can once again be open, making room for events, markets or everyday life.
ALIGN will be presented on the graduation show during Dutch Design Week – 21-29 October 2017.
