Bike Rack is Top Design

Copenhagen-based designers Ian Mahaffy and Maarten de Greeve’s design, a simple circle bisected by a crossbar, beat out more than 200 entries in a contest to come up with a secure bike rack for New York City cyclists. Almost 5,000 hoops, each costing under $300, are soon to be anchored to the pavement all over the city.—Peter Hellman

I picked up a back issue of Metropolitan Home's Design 100 and this bike rack was one of their picks. What do you think? I would love to have one at my house for guests to ride up and lock it. It's artful and practical.
