We are the exclusive UK suppliers for Santa & Cole’s cycle stands and bike racks. Situated near Barcelona Santa & Cole represent the highest standards of urban street design and have worked on many exciting developments across Europe. As befits a cutting-edge approach to design, Santa & Cole minimise the environmental impact of their products by incorporating recycled or recyclable materials into their designs. They have completely rethought the possibilities for cycle stands, incorporating shapes, forms and materials that bring style and functionality to many different types of urban space. Their range of bike racks suggest the passion that many European cities have for cycling, and includes the following designs:
- Bicilínea: the designer, Beth Galí, added a curved support to the Bicilínea handrail to ensure that bicycles can be locked more securely both by the frame and by the wheel. This elegant bike rack was created for an innovative regeneration project in the old quarters of ’s-Hertogenbosch (Netherlands). The stainless steel modular design can be joined together in rows to create a range of sizes and compositions. Its base and arms can be mounted on the road surface or embedded in soft surfaces.
- Key: these stands have simple and friendly forms, and are manufactured in coloured, high-density polyurethane foam to create a body that is pleasant to the touch and eye. This cycle stand is designed to humanize the harshness of the city. It can be used individually or in groups and is safe and durable for continual use. The base is made from powder-painted cast aluminium and the body includes a steel inner structure. You can choose between red, anthracite grey or yellow.
- Táctil: this is an original design by Antonio de Marco for street furniture that serves both as an urban boundary marker and a bike rack. It is made from a single piece in shotblasted Corten steel sheet, with a silhouette of a hand created by oxygen cutting. The stand is fixed to the road surface by two bolts that form part of the piece and which are placed into holes drilled in the road surface.
