Gallery: Dimini Birdhouse Bike Rack Holds Your Bike and Your Helmet Too


If you live in a small space, you know how much a bike can clutter up your home. Well, designers Lauren Thomas and Jennifer Karam of Dimini have come up with an elegant solution that not only gets your bike off your dining room floor; it stores your helmet too. The Birdhouse Bike Rack from Dimini is constructed of mahogany plywood and shaped like a birdhouse to lend style as well as storage to your home. It is finished with eco-friendly beeswax and linseed oil and would match with nearly any decor.

We love the little “bird perch” peg out front, which could potentially hold a light messenger bag or keys. But the best thing about this design is that this idea could be realized in so many different ways. Any design that mounts your bike on the wall while also storing your helmet could create the same stylish function this bike rack does. Imagine the wall art possibilities, and suddenly storing a bike in a tiny apartment becomes more of a lifestyle statement than a hassle.

    I can’t imagine why one would need a special bulky plywood box for a helmet. I usually just hang my helmet somewhere on the bike (there are lots of options for this), using helmet’s straps. Does someone have problems with doing the same? And to hang the bike on the wall, some usual pegs take much less place and materials.
