The bike rack is clunky eyesore. Found throughout cities and shore towns, these racks add messiness to an area even when not in use. Milou Bergs, a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven, is on a mission to rid the world of these metal monstrosities. The solution? Align. Align is project centered around eliminating this unnecessary noise via a series of pop-up bike racks. The racks hide in the pavement when not in use and pop-up like a seesaw when the front wheel is pressed down into one. Not only does it mean a cleaner look, but it means a useable area when there are no bikes present.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
