British designer Tom Dixon has just released his newest collection of gift sets. A collection of extraordinary accessories, gifts and design objects formed from authentic, resilient and heavyweight materials including copper, marble, cast iron, brass and wood, divided into four families: Brew, Cog, Scent Eclectic and Tank. In the tradition of British heritage, each piece is designed to be used or played with, to be treasured or to be given.

Brew is a celebration of the coming together of heat, steam, water and coffee grounds, a tribute to the mysteries of the modern-day coffee ceremony. Comprising caddy, scoop, cafetiere, stovetop, milk pan, espresso cups, biscuit tin and serving tray, the range includes a piece to perfect every stage of the coffee ritual, from the push of the plunger to the dunk of the biscuit. Re-imaged in sleek hyper-reflective black, the new Brew products are curated into gift sets for the burgeoning coffee connoisseur. Designed for the purist, both old and new, these exclusive sets are a bold statement in the art of dripping, plunging and percolating. Rendered in mirror-black PVD with a brushed stainless-steel interior, Brew remains a tribute to the mysteries of the modern-day coffee ceremony.

The Cog family comprises a series of super functional accessories and lighting, inspired by great British engineering. Creating a sense of the tooled and the machined, the accessory pieces are designed for the table top and the desk study, while the pendant lights bring the rugged beauty of the engineering workshop into any room in the home. Bold in form, exact in function, Cog is the instrument of inspired ideas. Engineered for the architect, the mathematician or the poet, Cog is the mechanical conduit of traditional communication in an increasingly digital world. Comprised of two pens and one mechanical pencil each, these new perfectly-formed sets finished in matte black, brushed aluminium and electric blue are the brand’s latest solution for indulging one’s more demanding friends and relatives.

There are a series of intangibles that can be just as important in interior-design as colour, luminosity and shape. Often, the most potent first impression and subsequent memory of a space can be its smell. The Eclectic family of Tom Dixon scents are each contained in a corresponding Brass, Copper and Stainless Steel hand-spun vessel. Eclectic also explores the Bathroom and the Kitchen sink with a focus on cleansing rituals and lotions. The new gift sets include evocative scents and unctuous lotions combined to create the indulgent in Christmas presents. Divided across nine generous sets designed to engage the senses, the Eclectic scents of London, Orientalist and Royalty proffer olfactory notes of nostalgia and escapism, of British summer and of exotic adventures across far-off lands.

Finally, Tank is a series of generously proportioned barware and decorative accessories designed to create sophisticated tabletop architecture. Gradations of black and smoky silhouettes and of ornamented with hand-painted copper detailing define the latest look for Tank glassware. Created through a technically demanding fusion, Tank is mouth-blown into the graphic forms for a timeless tabletop. Offered as exclusive gift sets, the Whiskey and Decanter collections are created for the purveyor of fine drinks.
