Extraordinarily designed but suitable for small room conditions has many functions, namely you can put bicycles, reading books, keys or other objects
Initiated by designer Killwood based in Vancouver using materials from felled wood, they created a work that is simple but has many functions. As we know, trees that are not cut down immediately when they are large will have the potential to cause massive forest fires. The mission of this studio is to introduce this product to many people and also aims to let people know the impact if the tree is not harvested immediately later. However, Killwood only uses wood that has fallen due to beetles. Killwood deliberately uses products from fallen trees caused by pine beetles, because later the trees that fall naturally still have the potential to grow back.
Killwood’s first product is named Bika, this is a storage area with an extraordinary design but still has many functions. The bicycle, keys, reading books and other small items. The materials used are not as usual by recycling from fallen trees as a result of the pine beetle. A bicycle can be hung on this Bika, there is also a shelf to place books, keys and other small equipment. This Bika design can be placed in a small area and does not take up much space.
Killwood draws inspiration from Japanese minimalist designs and modern designs, Bika is in synergy with nature but still has many benefits. The appearance of this Bika is very good, although behind the manufacture it goes through an unexpected process because the fallen wood due to the pine beetle can still grow naturally to form a local forest. With a minimalist design, Bika is made with a very simple design. Any kind of bike can be placed on this wooden rack design.
If it is mounted on a wall made of wood, it is related to environmental gossip that many people are talking about
The piece of wood is made a little thick so it’s easy to assemble
This collaboration of minimalist and modern Japanese designs is a source of inspiration for the Bika shelf
If designed to store books, magazines and some small items on the shelf, it can be mounted on the wall near the entrance
There is a hook to put the key attached to the bottom of the shelf, it looks very beautiful
