We believe that anything functional can also be beautiful – and if it is both, it becomes a loved and cherished possession.
Hang your bike on the wall, safely out of the way and in pride of place.
Cactus Tongue is the perfect storage solution for the urban cyclist.
Living with the Bicycle
When it comes to storing and displaying bicycles, British Brand Cactus Tongue firmly believes that design and form are as important as the functional aspects of a storage product.
“We want to see an alternative to utility bike storage, at home, in the workplace and in public places,” says Jon Taylor, the designer and director of Taylor Biddle Design Ltd. “With space so limited and with the huge growth in cycling, people are having to ‘live’ with their bikes, at home and at work. The bicycle is a beautiful machine - we make it easier to show them off and live amongst them with stunning design - led storage products.”
The Cactus Tongue displays a bike stylishly, out of the way and in pride of place, be it an old classic, a custom fixie or state of the art carbon racer.
Beautifully formed from stainless steel and detailed with hand-stitched leather, the Cactus Tongue SSL unit is unique in the bike storage sector. Being a lifetime surfer could help explain the deep curves and curled supportive tongues that hold the bike, evoking images of breakers on the Cornwall coast, home to designer Jon Taylor. Jon is passionate about design and, like William Morris, believes that anything functional can also be beautiful and that if it is both, it becomes a loved a cherished possession.
