- BARRIER GROUP PTY LTD
ZEPHYR is a stunning short or long term bicycle storage solution. Incorporate it into a cutting edge architectural setting and it becomes a sculptured bollard, a classic design element. In the town square or park it is a gathering point, a place to stop, to chat, to bide a while with friends. Or then again, is it simply a beautiful piece of public sculpture, one that invites you to run your hands over its sumptuous metallic form, its smooth and generous curves?
Contemporary design for modern lifestyle
As the world steadily becomes a more urban environment, with people seeking recreation outdoors in public spaces, the deployment of street furniture of high design values will be of vital importance to our quality of life. There is a danger that public spaces can degenerate into barren uninviting wastelands that become abandoned and unsafe. It will be important for local authorities breathe life into these open spaces and make them welcoming and secure, by showing they are cared for in the way they are landscaped and fitted with amenities.
ZEPHYR has been developed over two years by Australian company Barrier Group Pty Ltd. It’s taken many hours of conceptual drawing, followed by CAD design work and 3D modelling to finalise the design. We are very proud of the fact that it is 100% designed, developed and manufactured in Australia from Australian aluminium.
Beauty and Function
ZEPHYR’s architectural form is designed to be a sculptural element. From its earliest concepts, we wanted something that is more than just a bent piece of pipe. It had to be unique and have an almost sensual look and feel to it. We believe we have achieved this. ZEPHYR’s design ensures that bicycles of any size can be locked in a stable, upright position. ZEPHYR complies with AS2890.3-1993 for class 3 bicycle security. ZEPHYR’s multifunctional design means it can also be used as a sophisticated sculptural bollard.
ZEPHYR is manufactured as a one-piece casting from AA601 aluminium from Tasmania, It is 100% recyclable at its end of life.
