Copper Bike by Tom Dixon and Brompton Bicycle
by Mike / September 29, 2010
Via @designboom, a prototype copper plated bicycle for the London Design Festival designed by Tom Dixon in collaboration with Brompton Bicycle. "The process involves 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."
