Stockholm 2013: 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.
"I wanted it to blend in with the existing crowd, the steel tubes and extruded metal mesh, they are all familiar materials in the urban landscape," says Abrahamsson.
