The Ivy Bike Lock by Sono Mocci comes from Italy and is another one of the shortlisted design entries from more than 3000 participants in the recent designboom competition, 'seoul cycle design competition 2010', Basically a more aesthetic way to chain up your bike. Maybe bike robbers will see the beauty of the vine and decide not to steal it.
designer's own words:
'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)'
