A pro-activity proposal in the urban outdoor living concept
BikeBox is a modular structure conceived in order to better exploit urban spaces by deforesting from the forest of cars in which we are compressed.
From the design point of view it has little to do with a box, the line is light, but from a functional point of view it is a small “box” for bicycles. Made with metal grids that allow the light to filter through, for the gaze to see inside, and with a height limited to just 120 centimeters, it allows the passer-by to see beyond it.
It provides a flat roof, enriched with floral or in any case green elements. We can think of a cover that acts as a ‘pot’ to grow some varieties that need little maintenance and little soil. It is no longer a box. But it already becomes a much more pleasant element of street furniture even for traders who have shop windows on this or that sidewalk.
