Three inventive bike accessories that double as urban furniture
Spotted at Salone Satellite, the work of the Austrian duo Undpartner aims to not just design a few bike accessories but to reinvent urban experiences. As Barbara Gollackner and Michael Walder say, "Undpartner is ready to reconquer public space: city residents are being given the opportunity to reconquer room for communication and create a spot for everyday living with wear-it-yourself furniture."
The Parasite seat can be worn directly on the body, but can also hang wherever there's a pole, a door or a traffic sign.
Super Francesco gives bike riders the possibility to easily create public seating; with one click it can be removed from the bike and laid on the floor.
Elliot is a small sculptural item that turns a torch or a bike light into an outdoor lampshade and is easily carried along on bags or bikes.
