Bike meets ICFF 2011: 44steel, geekhouse bike + mint

At ICFF last year I spotted MIO's flat pack bike basket... and during my first (quick) visit to ICFF 2011 yesterday I (naturally) gravitated to the geekhouse custom built bike on display...
The bike hanger is by Cleveland-based Jason Radcliffe of Forty Four Steel and is one minimal and elegant fixture.  Jason's design keeps a bicycle hung vertically by simply resting the front wheel into the top of the frame -- similar to (but more visually appealing) then the Leonardo rack I'm fond. This is his first prototype and there are plans for some minor revisions -- but the final will be available shortly and  will some in a variety of powder coated colours as well as the raw steel. 

So nice seeing bikes represented at ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) since, after all, bikes make it into our home life for many of us!

Also spotted this clever little 'KEY CHAIN' by MINT, designed by Scott Henderson -- which makes one perfect holder for your bike key. It's brand new to the market but soon available at the MOMA Design Store. You can read about Scott's own love of bikes in this interview from 2009!
