March Gut has created an innovative storage system inspired by the workplace needs of cyclists.


Urban Wood Systems (UWS) addresses the idea of how to stow a bike and clothing in an office space, in a simple and stylish manner that is easy to assemble within the workplace.

The basic construction consists of two halves of round wood, which are pushed apart in opposite directions and secured to the floor and ceiling with support rods. The U.W.S. Base is set in place with threaded screws to firmly spread the structure apart between the ceiling and floor.

The design allows for personalisation or modular expansion with a storage table or additional storage bars, and can also be used as a coat rack should there be an absence of bikes in the office on any given day.


This project has been longlisted in the workplace design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
