If you want people to think you're the toughest guy on the streets, consider riding around on Clem Chen's teeth baring bike seat. The Canadian designer created a pair of arresting sculptures using recycled bicycle parts for Asia Awards 2013, a competition held by Designboom and Japan Design Association.

Finalist Chen brought the salvaged parts to life by slicing openings and embedding plastic-cast taxidermy molds into them. One of the bike seat sculptures, appropriately entitled Bite Itconsists of a set of sharp teeth. The other, Pink Eye, features an eyeball that stares onlookers down. Cemented together with construction adhesive and 2-part epoxy glue, the sculptures look terrifyingly realistic.
