Personal needs plus principles in contemporary interiors. It was desire to create object, which will looks nice even in the case, that bike is not there and it will looks that nothing miss there.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Hearth is designated for city bikes. Its function is intentionally hidden into the interior accessory. Even though it looks very light and airy, it can really carry a lot thanks to its shape, which will release the weight equally on the wall.

Hanger has 4 plastic tubes in same color as entire Heart for protection bike.

interior decoration, to show their passion, be proud of your bike
The bike is a phenomenal invention with the basic geometric which remained unchanged for more than 100 years. However, the people's lifestyle as well as urbanism of our cities is now being changed.Cycling is booming. No matter if it is everyday cycling to work or enjoying your free time, cycling is in. But city apartments don't have cellars and there is not enough space in the interiors. "Garage" hooks will disturb the apartment atmosphere and they can turn down the whole draft.
First part was a looking for shape, which will be cool, timeless and how to hide main function on this shape. Structure of triangles is perfect for distribution of weight. After final prototype, most difficult part was a looking for right suppliers, who provide the best quality. All part are produced in Czech Republic bespoke, even plastic tubes.
