Tom Dixon AW15 Preview
Posted on 12 July 2015
Jumping at the chance to preview the gorgeous designs from Tom Dixon for his AW2015 collection, I made my way to the iconic Heal's store on Tottenham Court Road. All the designs for this collection stay true to the Tom Dixon brand yet somehow feel like an evolution in the product design. As an avid lover of tea, a personal favourite from past seasons has been the Form tea set (imaged at the bottom). I was thrilled to see an additional focus within this area with the brand new copper coffee set titled "Brew". With simple lines and metallic curves, the set has a presence that would usually be associated with art. This is a coffee set designed to be on display and attract attention.
The packaging for this season is a marvel in itself. Bright teal with orange lettering, the boxes appear seamless and simple, complimenting this seasons designs perfectly. The other item that drew my attention was the futuristic Melt pendants, displayed above in chrome, copper and gold finishes. What I love is the transformation of this fixture from when it is lit. When the fitting is switched off, it appears as a solid metallic colour, a beautiful sculptural shape. When the fitting is switched on, the internal light creates a reflection of multiple shoes and swirls, almost giving it the appearance of a liquid. Stay tuned to see my full feature of the Tom Dixon collection shortly.
