With Stasis, your bike is "admired, not just stored"

There are a number of reasons we have shown so many beautiful bike storage systems, noted earlier:

They give you an elegant way to store your bike inside in small spaces;
They display your pride and joy artfully;
They often have additional storage for your helmet or your keys;
They just look lovely.

Here is a new addition, Stasis, from designer and woodworker Callum Robinson of Method Studio near Edinburgh, who collaborated with his local heating engineer. He tells Hans Aschim of Cool Hunting:

"We have a lot of passionate cyclists among our customers, and there's always that one bike that's their baby," Robinson says. "It's a bit Damien Hirst, almost 'Metropolis'-inspired. We wanted the bike to be admired, not just stored." A key part of Method Studio's process is the story behind each piece. "The provenance is really important to us," Robinson says, "The wood is actually from the estate where I live and we know the guy who cuts the trees down and he mills them."

It makes a lovely story, how Robinson hit the local heating repair shop to do the plumbing, after admiring Keith Livingstone's beautiful pipework. From Coolhunting:

"I've worked with a lot of guys over the years," Robinson says, "It's easy to spot someone who's doing exceptionally good work simply for its own sake." Over the following years, Robinson's admiration for Livingstone's devotion to quality work morphed into collaboration. "I called him and said, 'Your pipework—which I'm sure you've been teased about—how would you like to have it displayed at the Royal Academy of Art?'"

Copper plumbing is becoming less common as more plumbers use PEX, so Stasis also displays what is really becoming a dying craft as plumbers switch to a healthier, more flexible piping system. Lovely stuff from Method Studio

If you are going to have to keep your bike in your apartment, you might as well display it with pride.
