Bike Shelf up for Dwell Modern World Award

Please go here for the most updated information and purchasing options for The Bike Shelf. This site you are currently on is no longer being updated, there is a new Knife & Saw website

The Bike Shelf has been chosen as a finalist in the first ever Dwell Modern World Awards. The winners will be announced at this years Dwell on Design conference on June 24th. I am very honored to be even mentioned in the same context as the other designers in my category, let alone up for this award. If you have a minute, take a look at the other finalists and if you think the Bike Shelf should win, please vote for it. It is in the “Play” category.

Here is some info on the Awards:

“We are proud to announce the first ever Modern World Awards and Ceremony this year at Dwell on Design. Every day we scour the wide world of design for the best products, objects, and furniture for our magazine and website. And now we are very happy to stamp our seal of approval on our favorite 25 designs from the last year and a half at the first Modern World Awards exhibit and Ceremony.

The awards will be handed out in a special presentation at Dwell on Design at 5:00 on June 24th. If you can’t make it, don’t fret. The 25 designs will be exhibited on the show floor throughout the three days of Dwell on Design.

Taken directly from the pages of Dwell, the five finalists we’ve selected in in five different categories best encompass our take on how the modern world, and how good design improves it. Whether at work or play, at rest or on the go, these are the designs that matter most. As usual, we’re looking for innovation, clever use of materials, sustainable design, and that je ne sais quois that makes us say, “I gotta get one of those.”

Thanks,
Chris
