Public Bikes is a line well-design, city-friendly, Euro-inspired bikes that have us drooling profusely. The company, started by Design Within Reach founder Rob Forbes, is in the game to encourage bicycle riding by making it more affordable, practical and chic… So they’re natural activists for functional urban spaces. They asked 27 world-renowned designers to interpret the concept of “public” with a eye toward reclaiming urban streets, sidewalks and other spaces. The result is a unique body of art in its own right. One that makes a strong case for peddling for a better city.
