I found out this weekend that the Bike Shelf won 2 awards at the Dwell on Design Conference Modern World Awards. It won in the “Play” category and it also took home the overall People’s Choice Award. You can see the Bike Shelf accepting its award above.

I just wanted to thank Dwell first of all for putting me in the magazine and then nominating me for this award. It is very flattering to even be considered along side these great designers and their products, let alone to be chosen for the award. Even more flattering is to be chosen by all of you for the People’s Choice award. Thank you so much to all of you who voted for me and spread the word, as well as for your overall support. It means a lot. I hope I can continue to make work that you enjoy and follow.

Thanks again to you and congrats to all of the other designers who were nominated as well, there are some great designs out there well worthy of the awards.

No more waiting…

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 This site you are currently on is no longer being updated, there is a new Knife & Saw website

I have some great news on the waiting time for the Bike Shelf. I am finally getting help with production and will have a large run finished in 4-6 weeks… hopefully more on the 4 week side. From this point on, if you order a Bike Shelf, you will be shipped one come end of July. And, from that point on, if you order and pay for a Bike Shelf, you will be shipped one immediately.

I know there are some of you that have been waiting for a while already and I apologize for that but I have had many orders and only 2 hands unfortunately. I hope you understand. For those of you already on the list, you should have been sent an email about payment and you will be top priority once the Shelves are finished. If you did not receive an email, it is most likely because your email was input improperly in the form, or perhaps my email was sent to your spam folder.

For the rest of you who would like to put in orders now, please go here to make payment and you will be shipped out your Bike Shelf as soon as it is ready.

Thanks again for all of your interest in the Bike Shelf and the patience of many of you who have been waiting.

Bike Shelf & DWR

Hello all. I wanted to let you know about some exciting news regarding the Bike Shelf. A few weeks ago, the Bike Shelf went on display at 10 Design Within Reach stores around the country. At stores in Austin, Berkeley, Cambridge, Charlotte, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami Beach, New Orleans, Portland and Scottsdale, the Bike Shelf is holding up a bike from DWR Founder Rob Forbes’ new bike company, Public Bikes. I’m honored to be in the company of such great designers and furniture at these stores, and I think the Bike Shelf and Public Bikes look great together. If you are near any of these stores and would like to check out the Bike Shelf in person, you should stop by. They are not being sold through DWR, please still contact me directly if you are interested.

For more information, check out the DWR Blog.
