tom dixon brews up a coffee collection for maison & objet




tom dixon presents ‘brew’ — a suite of gleaming, copper appliances for the coffee obsessed. debuting at maison & objet 2015 in paris, ‘brew’ celebrates the coming together of heat, steam, water and coffee grounds, and pays tribute to the modern-day ceremony of serving coffee. comprised of a biscuit tin, caddy, cafetiere, espresso cups, milk pan, scoop, serving tray and stovetop, the ‘brew’ collection sets the stage for the ritual of making and consuming coffee — from the push of the plunger, to the dunk of the biscuit.
