Bicycle stands can often serve as a fair-weather substitute of a shed or a garage. Although bicycle stands are often manufactured as large, high-capacity racks, individual stands that are suited to private homes and gardens are also available.
One such design is ‘Looper bicycle rack’, designed for Vestre by Johan Verden and Hong Ngo-Aandal. This bicycle stand combines a solid base made from concrete, which can be integrated into the pavement, and a collapsible arm that can hold a bicycle wheel. As such, the bicycle stand does not form an obstruction when not in use.
