Double Takes: NYC Bike Racks: David Byrne

David Byrne, best known as the former front-man of the Talking Heads is the master mind and designer behind New York City’s newest installment of bike racks. He teamed up with the New York City Department of Transportation and New York art gallery PaceWildenstein to produced nine new racks which will be placed in various locations throughout the city. Each one is an iconic representation of the neighborhood it’s located in. They’ll be in use throughout the city for a year before going on display and up for sale at PaceWildenstein.
