Basket Pannier Straps a Portable Picnic Table To Your Bike

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If dining in the great outdoors is your cup of tea, you'll love designer Jeriël Bobbe's Springtime picnic basket. Not only does it make it easy to use your bike to transport everything you'll need for a feast in the park—from plates, to cups, to food—the basket also transforms into a picnic table for two.

It's the perfect picnic accessory if you don't want to sit on the ground and have your meal overrun with ants. And it's been intelligently engineered to function as a regular basket if you don't want to bring your bike—just secure the two sides together and go. A functional prototype does exist, so the design isn't completely pie-in-the-sky, but sadly it doesn't appear as if Bobbe has any intentions of putting his creation into production. So don't burn that checkerboard blanket just yet.
