Tom Dixon Brew Collection
Posted on 20 July 2015
When it comes to modern British design icons, Tom Dixon is at the top with his rich industrial inspiration, transforming regular and usually overlooked items, into gleaming metallic masterpieces. Earlier this month I got an exclusive look into the breathtaking new coffee collection titled "Brew" and as usual, the designs never fail to impress.
Every season there seems to be an evolution in design, an extra layer revealed from the Tom Dixon brand and the Brew collection appears to be a development and expansion of the equally gorgeous "Form" tea collection with its art deco, brass finish. Brew consists of eight beautifully finished copper pieces, ranging from a milk pan and cafetiere to a biscuit tin and spoon.
What never ceases to amaze me with these designs are the quality and thought behind each item. Whilst the pieces combine to create a collection, each item is remarkable individually. The spoon has a extraordinary weight to it, combined with its seamless finish, creating an object of opulence.
These are not only functional pieces, perfect for entertaining guests and for the coffee morning. These items are works of art that I know from experience people display with pride on a side board or counter top. With each design, Dixon creates something that has presence, adding character to a space. He never misses the smaller items an intricate details, something easily overlooked with other designers. This is the reason why Tom Dixon is an icon of design.
