Informed by his British heritage, a unique approach to design, and an obsession with manufacturing, Tom Dixon is recognized for crafting a range of sculptural products from luxurious, sleek, and sometimes even unexpected materials. In his newest accessory offering, the self-taught designer once again works with some of his favorites: copper, crystal, cast iron, marble, and wood, to create sophisticated interpretations of everyday objects. “You have to be as decorative or as minimal as you possibly can just so that you can have an identity that is recognizable and a proposition that is identifiable,” he says.
Much more than “identifiable,” Dixon’s design objects are extraordinary in both form and figure. From his Cookshop series designed for the modern host, cocktail aficionado, or the enthusiastic chef, to the minimalist stationery collection made for the bookworm or prolific writer, his imaginative and glamorous touches reflect the best of British engineering and ingenuity.

Tank decanter and low ball glass
Made with mouth-blown glass accented with hand-painted copper detailing, the Tank Bar collection includes a jug, low ball and high ball glasses, and a decanter.
Cog stationery collection
Designed to add a touch of sophistication and glamour to the modern desktop, this collection was inspired by British engineering and is made from solid brass. The collection includes a pen block, pen hex, and desk tidy.
The newest addition to the evolving stationery collection, this modern and minimalist selection of copper desk accessories includes a desk tidy, a stapler, a tape dispenser, and a pen.
Desktop storage boxes are made with cast iron and are covered with magnifying glass lids. Dixon describes them as “not a conventional decorative accessory, more a multifunctional design artifact that can masquerade as a treasure box.”
Scent elements water
A sophisticated range of “unexpected” fragrances for the home draws inspiration from many sources, including the basic elements: water, fire, air, and earth. The candles in this series are held in mouth-blown colored glass.
