Fences & Bikes: An Amicable Relationship
Fences inherently create repetition with a display of pickets and posts, and our Fence Workshop employees feel that this fence made of old bikes evokes the same response. A never-ending display of circles is just as pleasing as a never-ending display of pickets.
At Fence Workshop we get so caught up with aesthetics that we forget fences are about function as well. Here’s to taking functionality to a new and unexpected level.
This bike fence interests us at Fence Workshop because of its simplicity and adherence to the root of fence-building principles. You start with posts and then you add a frame. In this case, we like the variation on the frame.
Fence Workshop loves this gate because it’s a beautiful sculpture made of recycled materials. Bike wheels are functional and simple, and already resemble the construction of a fence in principle. Using bike wheels to fill in voids in a gate made of rusty steel is a pretty neat invention in our book. It seems the steel will be ever-changing as the rust changes patina while the spokes on the bike wheels evoke the same motion and transformation.
