New York City Bike Pole


Fabian Monsalve and Mesve Vardar participated in the NYC Bike Stand
competition with the NYC Bike Pole. Their approach highlighted the need
for bike fixtures to be ubiquitous as users do not discriminate between official
bike racks and happenstance objects. Proximity and visibility are key factors.

Under the name Verde, Fabian and Mesve conducted research into usability
issues of current bike racks in New York and other cities. Concept development
included small prototypes and visual mash-ups.
