Stellenbosch Bike Racks

In 2017 the Stellenbosch Outdoor Sculpture Trust (a non-profit pro-public art organisation) ran a competition for a series of creative new bike racks with a sculptural twist. Two of my designs were among the winners.

‘Leaf’ was based on the curled and drying oak leaves that fill the cobbled streets of this picturesque student town, eventually ending up in the ‘leiwater slote’ that still line many streets.

‘Mountain’ took the iconic forms of the mountains surrounding Stellenbosch and abstracted them into bent and perforated steel sheets which line up to form a view reminiscent of the ridgeline from the vineyards.
