If you’re a cyclist in the city you know how frustrating it can be dodging cars or even trying to find a place to lock up your ride! In a world where automobiles have taken over the streets, we were struck by the irony of this ingenious car-shaped bike rack by Ilian Milinov. A shortlisted entry in Designboom’s IIDA Competition, the Car-cycle Rack takes the shape of a car silhouette to show onlookers how many bicycles could fit in the space reserved for one vehicle. Not only does the design cleverly address the widespread parking issues plaguing most cities, it also brings cycling to light as a green solution to gas-guzzling, space-hungry vehicles.
