British designer Tom Dixon is undoubtedly famous for his love of copper, one of the oldest metal used by man.  His Copper Shade pendant light is already a modern classic. So it comes as no surprise that fold-up bike brand, Brompton collaboration with Tom Dixon to develop a limited edition prototype copper plated bicycle.  The precise process involved a base nickel plating to offer a ‘key’ for the thin copper layer on top, followed by an electrophoretic lacquer coating of all the frame parts to seal the copper finish and add further protection from the elements.
