Street machine, urban arrow, statement commuter bike, the Bridgland Airnimal is a combination of stylish urban transportation and work of art.
Adam Bridgland is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. Since his graduation in 2006, he has exhibited widely in the UK, America, Europe and Asia. The British Museum, the V&A, UBS, Boeing Asia and Debbie Harry are just some of the collectors of Adam’s work. In July 2009 Adam was awarded his first major public art commission by Commissions East. He has since gone to complete a number of important projects, including work for YouTube, Heal’s, Airnimal bikes, SmartLIFE, Jacuzzi and Eastern Pavilions.
Adam’s ‘Airplanes’ and Airnimal’s design mantra seemed to have a lot of synergy. The kinetic energy so present in Adam’s ‘Airplanes’, brought to live by the movement of the bike. The discrete folding mechanisms of the bike frame hint to the art of origami represented by the fold lines of the paper planes.
To reflect the unique and exclusive nature of the bike, only the best components have been selected to adorn the custom Airnimal frame. A carbon fork sits upfront, controlled by a café racer style handlebar. To maintain the sleek look, a single speed White Industries drive was used, a work of art on its own. The wheels, built around White Industries hubs, are laced using colour matched spokes to pick up the colours used in the frame artwork.
