“Why does our bicycle need to be connected to light poles by chains like a criminal in prison? Inspired by nature, the design of this cable wire lock is a mimicry of ivy. It is unified in our daily scene and promotes protection of the environment. It is soft and feels natural. ‘Ivy’ is a plug to awaken the relationship between you and society. 4 dial number lock, steel wire + silicon gomcovered. 2 sizes: short (900mm), long (1500mm)” – says designer Sono Mocci from Italy.
‘Ivy’ is one of the shortlisted design entries from more than 3000 participants in the designboom competition, ‘seoul cycle design competition 2010′, organized in collaboration with Seoul design foundation.
Just wondering, would you steal a bike or the Ivy lock instead?
