Design Icon Brompton is now in the Smithsonian

August 8, 2016  |  By Blair Smith

More than meets the eye with this twisted piece of metal. The beautifully designed Brompton folding bicycle has earned a permanent place in the Smithsonian Institution’s design museum, the Cooper Hewitt in New York City.

This iconic British-designed urban cycling brand nods to companies like Apple that place design at the heart of their product, while still delivering a product that works. According to The Economist, Brompton isn’t even the market leader in the folding bicycle space. That goes to the American company Dahon. But it wins on exceptional design with a good looking 2-speed bicycle that folds into a neat 60 centimetre square package.

“A Brompton bicycle fits under desks, in cloakrooms and on crowded trains, joining public and private transport seamlessly”. – The Economist

Brompton Folding Bicycle

Part of Brompton’s appeal is the simplicity of hand-brazed steel construction and simple colours. It doesn’t look like a bicycle from the future–but remains extremely relevant to city cycling today.

“As cycling continues to grow in popularity to navigate urban environments, it’s clear that today’s cyclists are as demanding on design as they are for performance and reliability.” says Katharine Horsman, General Manager of Brompton Bicycle Inc., “At Brompton, we pride ourselves on offering all three and it’s fantastic to have been recognized for this across the world.”
