My Bike Friday pakiT is sub 19lbs, folds quickly and easily (although longer than a brompton, but a bit narrower). I take it on public transportation all the time and carry up several flights of stairs (I have a version of the Off Yer Bike handle on it). I carry it around folded inside stores while shopping and it also fits easily in grocery carts. For me, the big issue was weight because i am the same height as you and a senior citizen. My bike weighs less than a full grocery sack. You can configure it exactly the way you want which helps address the weight issues by choosing lighter components/frame. However, you are in Europe so I don't know how feasible it is for you (especially with the tariff wars, please don't get me started, lol).
But I don't think you will find a better riding folder under 20 lbs; I know I tried.
