Gallery: Bloon’s Picnic Basket Multitasks as Bicycle Pannier, Dining Table

Don't be fooled by its quaint appearance: Bloon's "Springtime" basket is much more than a mode of conveyance for picnickers. A portable, all-in-one solution for dining alfresco, the multitasking carryall not only carts food, cutlery, cups, and plates, but it also transforms into a picnic table for two, complete with cushioned seating. Rather pedal than drive to your destination? You can even turn the basket into a pannier-style hamper for your bicycle.


The Springtime is brainchild of Bloon founder Jeriël Bobbe, a Dutch designer whose passion for “pure and honest materials and the magic of simplicity” manifests itself in the basket’s clean and uncluttered appearance. At first glance, the Springtime resembles a bento-like container with sectioned-off compartments for your gear and grub. Slide the two halves apart, however, and the basket morphs into a balanced carry-on for your bike.

Popping off the top reveals a wooden tabletop and a pair of expansion leaves, with the two sections doubling as chairs.

And forget spreading out on a blanket and eating uncomfortably on the ground. Popping off the top reveals a wooden tabletop and a pair of expansion leaves. The basket handle flips down to create the table leg, while the two sections double as chairs.

Although the Springtime isn’t available for sale just yet, Bloon expects to have the product for sale in May—just in time for a summer’s worth of picnics.

    Hi! Can you guys post a picture of 2 people sitting at the table? I’m erally interested in this but doubt it would fit 2 adults with legs…just curious, maybe my sense of its scale is off. What an awesome idea!!
