Italian company Vado Libero recently launched a collection of innovative furniture pieces designed to compliment a cycling lifestyle. We checked out the collection during this year's Milan Design Week and it stood out by virtue of its practical design, craftsmanship and use of high quality materials. The collection includes three modules, which not only make storing a bike and its accessories easy, but also offer an aesthetic which transforms your bike into an interior show piece.

"Wewanted to combine the best craftsmanship with the ultimate design tobroaden the cycling experience," says Vado Libero. "Andthen, we put in an obsessive amount of attention to detail and workedside by side with people who actually sew, cut, build, hack andhammer what we had originally conceived."

TheBike Shelf has been especially designed to transform one's bicycleinto an indoor sculpture or feature piece. Built for theliving room, the unique piece of furniture frames a bicycle in thecenter of a wooden cabinet and then bathes it with light. The modular structure is made from mulch-layeredbirch wood with oak veneer and comes flat packed in four pieces forrelatively easy assembly. It features a universal stainless clampwhich holds the bike's rear wheel in place and can be adjusteddepending on the the size of the wheel.

The cabinet also comes equipped with an overhead stainless steel clothesrack with four leather hooks and a series of wooden poles, which canmove around depending on the user's needs. It has been designed toaccommodate all the accessories that go with a cycling lifestyle,including the helmet, jacket, water bottle, pad lock etc.

One down side to this product is its weight, which at 90 kg (198 lb) wouldmake delivery outside of Italy very expensive.
