Jet bridge: cup, cleaning product, pen


A little reminder of who makes it all work

Gatwick airport, 4 May 2014


Every time I travel through the moveable, concertina bridge – a jet bridge – between an airport gate and its plane, there is always a different object resting there.

The coffee that keeps the jet bridge operator going, cleaning products to keep the aircraft looking good and a pen. Seems the world has not forgotten the writing implement just yet. A small reminder of the often invisible people around us who make everything work.


The Riut bag will be unveiled and available this autumn for 30 days only via Kickstarter, crowdfunding website. Give your views on rucksacks and register to find out about the Riut bag when it is released.
