The 20th anniversary edition will take place on 17th – 25th September and we are hosting a tiny piece of it in our very own Brompton Junction Covent Garden store in collaboration with London Metropolitan University.
Embracing a circular approach to design, we asked students at London Metropolitan University to find new life for ‘old’ Brompton bike parts that are now out of service.
The collaboration has produced some stunning, innovative and truly unique pieces, ranging from whimsical games to household items. Every piece has been carefully considered, with the chosen component key to the design and functioning of the piece.
This light re- purposes the classic Brompton handlebar in homage to Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu’s iconic design for Flos. Using the handlebar, brake cable and cable guides, it captures Brompton’s values of engineering precision, elegance and function. Adjustable in height and capable of 360-degree orientation, it can adapt to a variety of environments, from production lines to office space, from shops to homes.
Inspired by the idea of motion, play, and the characterful qualities of release clips, this foosball makes good use of old quick release clips as the players and handlebar grips as the handles.
