The 35 Collection is a family of site furniture elements with a youthful spirit and a mission to promote social life in outdoor spaces. Created in collaboration with frog, the design powerhouse renowned for the first Apple computer, 35 integrates forms from architecture and nature in outdoor furniture for the 21st century. The collection includes nine elements and they all work together to create integrated design solutions, while each makes a strong design statement all its own. The Loop bike rack is a simple, sweeping circle with a twist. Both functional and sculptural, it is a welcome new addition to the 35 Collection of integrated site elements created with frog design to encourage social activity in outdoor space. Cyclists can loop and lock one bike or two around its shape-shifting cast aluminum ribbon frame. Functional and sculptural, it meets a growing need for secure bicycle docking in recreational spaces and “complete streets,” carrying on the 35 Collection mission to support social activity in outdoor space. Like all products in the 35 Collection, it is finished with Landscape Forms proprietary Pangard® Powdercoat in colors from the company’s Designer Palette. All units can be installed either as a surface mount or embedded
