I really despise “high design” and conceptual garbage like this:
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 gom-covered. 2 sizes: short (900mm), long (1500mm)
How the hell can this be classified as a bike lock? Oh and it was shortlisted in a Seoul Cycle Design completion. Really? All you need to get rid of vines, in both cases are some shears. Why not design something with a world-wide application instead of what bike lock to use at a monastery? Good design isn’t gimmicky, it’s applicable. Check out more at Design Boom.
