When the opportunity to exhibit at the London Design Festival – a collection of 100’s of exhibitions based across 5 design districts – we couldn’t resist getting involved. We set up a pop-up factory just across the road from where the inventor
Andrew Richie first designed the Brompton over 30 years ago. To celebrate the design nature of the show, we released a very limited number of special edition colours including Gold and Grey and the bikes could be made using up to 5 colours as
opposed to the usual 2. Each bike made also featured a unique head badge celebrating the event.
Moving the production line to a basement in Central London was not without its challenges! We had to winch parts through the floor as they wouldn’t fit down the stairs and prepare over 500 parts to ensure the line ran smoothly.
