The Beautiful Bike Shelf (4 pics)

While visiting friends’ small apartments in SF in NY, designer Chris Brigham noticed that there was no way to elegantly store your bike. Enter the Bike Shelf. Brigham designed a beautifully crafted piece of solid wood (in this case, Walnut) and suspended it by a solid steel square rod mount. It acts as a multi-purpose shelf, able to gracefully display your books and knick knacks.The shelf can be custom made for any size bike and can be crafted in practically any wood of your choosing.

Brigham started his home furnishings company, Knife & Saw, after working over a decade in graphic design. He even worked at Google, as you can see from his beautiful portfolio.As he says, “Nearly 11 years later, after working for a start-up or two, the amazing yet ill-fated Design Magazine-ONE, a small web company named Google and with an extremely talented group of people at Factor Design, I found myself still striving to make more tangible objects. So I decided to turn my garage into a wood shop and start building. With that, Knife & Saw was born. Not having a formal education in furniture design, I find myself learning a lot along the way, but almost always figuring it out in the end. I have a knack for reverse engineering and willingness to fail miserably which I think help a lot. My aim for Knife & Saw is to be a place where people can come with a problem or idea and I can take that and build something to fit it. I felt like it was hard to find custom built furniture that was somewhat affordable around town, so I'm hoping to fill that void.”Knife & Saw
