Kickstarter of the Week: Statement Bike Rack

If you live in a small space, especially one without a garage, bike storage can be a nightmare. In the past we've praised clever bike-on-the-wall solutions, and today we're dubbing the Statement bike rack our Kickstarter of the Week. Designed and made in Los Angeles by industrial designer Daniel Sculnick and artist and craftsman Raul Diaz, the Statement rack not only gives your wheels a place to rest after a long hard ride, but it does double duty as a decorative piece of wall art. The project is nearly funded, and one of the latest projects from the Native Standard collective.

5 Australian Designers We Love

Australia—the light-drenched island at the bottom of the world, the site of virgin white beaches, exotic air, and majestic wilderness, place to a vivid national surf culture, a heady tropical climate, and singular environmental challenges; is a country that champions the design of nationally-made products with a specificity of purpose and an aesthetic, unique to its geographical isolation. Where some of the world’s design plays on sustainability as a motif of political correctness, Australian designers live environmental shortages, ecological fragility, and depletion as an everyday reality. These hurdles inspire out-of-the-ordinary thought and the use of new materials, so that in the creation of Australian design pieces, their forms and functions embody original ethical approaches and sustainability-conscious solutions. If there was a national Australian design creed, it might read something like: ecologically-savvy with a gently inventive edge. We discovered five designers that exemplify this creed on a recent trip to Australia.
