Bikers traffic light rest

Swedish designer Marcus Abrahamsson devised this bollard with a foot rest and handle to help cyclists keep their balance at traffic lights. Created for outdoor furniture brand Nola, bikers' rest is a steel tube with a domed top circled by two rings.

Positioned about waist height when on a bike, the upper rung can be grabbed by a free hand to aid balance.The second loop just off the ground is covered over with extruded metal mesh to create a panel with improved grip for shoes.
