Heklucht Bikestand With Airpump

October 25, 2007


The Heklucht is a bikestand which incorporates an airpump, and is not a bad idea.

The product was conceived for an art project in Ypenburg (a newly build neighborhood in the Netherlands). Eight products will be placed in front of eight houses. The goal of the project is to stimulate an interaction between neighbors, while pumping up the tires of their bicycles.

Sounds good, and I like their level of shine. The only problem is they wouldn't work in my town. The stimulated neighborly interaction would go a lot like, "Hey vagrant, get off my property!" "Chill out you f'ing old hag, I'm blowing up the tires on this bike I stole." This may or may not be followed by gunshots.
