Tom Dixon x Brompton Bicycle   Copper Folded Bike

Best known for his spherical designs that looked at home in an earth bound environment or one that is extraterrial kind, British designer http://tomdixon.net/” target=”_blank”>Tom Dixon partnered with folding bike manufacturer http://brompton.co.uk” target=”_blank”>Bromption Bicycle in the creation of a special project for the ongoing http://londondesignfestival.com” target=”_blank”>London Design Festival (aka London Design Week). What came to be known simply as the Copper Bike, the process involved in a nickel plating process first, then a thin application of copper over it. All finished with a layer of electrophoretic lacquer to “seal in” the copper from the elements. The bike even comes with a specially treated leather saddle from http://brooksengland.com” target=”_blank”>BROOKS.  The procedure was shown as part of a live demonstration at Tom Dixon’s studio to let visitors a better understand of the design process as a whole, from start to finish. via: http://designboom.com/weblog/cat/8/view/11620/tom-dixon-x-brompton-bicycle.html” target=”_blank”>DesignBoom
