We’re big bike fans [2] here at Inhabitat, and we’re always on the lookout for great designs that seamlessly integrate our favorite form of transport into our lifestyles. Now we’ve spotted one more inspiring item to add to the list: the PIT IN desk [3] from Japan-based Store Muu [4]. This versatile desk serves double duty as a safe place to store your bike – wouldn’t it be great to have one of these to rest upon when grabbing a quick coffee or checking your email?

This sleek plywood desk is perhaps best suited for quick cafe pit stops, where it could save you the trouble of locking up outside. But we think it could also be a good justification for integrating our bikes into our homes, as it provides an opportunity to display and store our bikes at the same time. This design was nominated for the Design Report Award at the Milan Salone Satellite [6] in 2009.
