Stasis - The World's Finest Bicycle Storage
My Pashley Roadster Soverign has located another bike-related gem after its recent Brooks bag discovery.
This time it's tipped me off about Method Studio and their Stasis bicycle storage system (above and below). Billed as the 'world's finest bicycle storage' — Do you know better? — what bike wouldn't like one of these to call home? My Pashley certainly would. It's going on and on about it like a lovelorn loon. Apparently, being parked against the building and manacled to the railings night and day, exposed to the elements, isn't quite the same. Where is its British stoicism? It's lucky it has railings. I don't know.
Stasis is built in Scotland from copper and Scottish oak, with leather rests for the bike and a very functional drip tray beneath the rests. The storage also has a hand-crafted willow basket to stow your bike things. You can add more baskets if you have lots of things.
As it's built to commission, the sizing of the Stasis can be adjusted to fit your bike perfectly.
About Method Studio
Method Studio — based near Edinburgh, Scotland — is run by cabinetmaker Callum G. Robinson and architect Marisa Giannasi; a married couple who design and create hand-crafted items in wood and complimentary materials from their studio and workshop.
One of their more recent commissions was to produce chairs for the Glasgow School of Art, the first bespoke furniture made for the school since the pioneering Charles Rennie Mackintosh made his indelible mark.
Marisa was trained at the Mackintosh School of Architecture at the Glasgow School of Art. Callum is a second-generation cabinetmaker who was taught be his father David, a master cabinetmaker and woodcarver.
