taking the stage as maison & objet designer of the year 2014, tom dixon has launched his 2014 accessories collection in paris. the series includes ‘plum’, a variety of glass and copper bar artefacts, ‘arc’, sand casted solid brass table-top utensils and ‘cog’, brass-plated metal candle holders and containers. all made from natural and semi-precious materials, the objects reference forms found in nature and in fields of engineering and physics.






creating a sense of the tooled and the machined, the brass-plated aluminum ‘cog’ collection brings a sense of british engineering into the home. the series features medium and large candle holders, conical and cylindrical tea light holders, small and large containers, a candelabra and a desk organizer.

influenced by science fiction and futuristic simplicity, ‘arc’, the series of unique table-top utensils, are constructed with solid brass using a sand-casting process. the collection comprises a two-piece trivet that can be combined to form a simple centre piece to protect a table top from heat or water damage, a bottle opener and a cork screw.

formed from glass and copper, each mouth-blown and hand-cut piece from the ‘plum’ collection brings functional cocktail culture and drinking tradition into a contemporary context. ‘the futuristic copper-plated cocktail shaker with large belly and tapered ends allows a firmer grip and more balanced shaking,’ explains dixon. ‘the slim end cap also functions as a spirit measure.’ plum comprises tongs, vases (small and large), swizzle sticks, a cocktail shaker, a serving platter, an ice bucket, a champagne bucket and a lemon squeezer.
