If you own a bike and ride it regularly, you are bound to have more than one spare inner tube kicking around the house. I know I do, even the other night I started fixing two punctures, to discover I actually had an impressive pattern of small holes caused by a small pin and had to opt for a new inner tube. I have always thought it seems a shame to get rid of these and now SystemDesignStudio have come up with a pretty good idea… make them into shelves. This design was submitted into Inhabitat’s Spring Greening Competition and I think its great.

The components of the design can be seen above and are quite simple.
