From his prized lighting designs to limited-edition cognac bottles to fragrances and candles, British designer Tom Dixon focusses on every aspect of the home, and now he’s even throwing in the kitchen sink — literally.
After working with a plethora of hotels, spas and apartments, Dixon has renewed his attention on bathrooms and kitchens, saying “After working on some of the harder, tougher components of lighting and storage, it all felt a bit incomplete without looking at the softer elements…so it seemed only natural to start thinking of the lotions and potions of this most cleansing of spaces.”
Debuting at Maison & Objet Paris, th new product line features paraben-free hand washes, washing-up liquid, hand balms and gift sets. The products are designed around the designer’s three signature scents: London, Royalty and Orientalist.
London features an almost alien-like, pitch-black liquid soap,, which contains black clay and charcoal for its detoxifying properties. Smelling subtly of black pepper, oud wood and brightened with patchouli, the scent is made to recall smokey red brick and London parks. The hand balm for this scent is also enriched with rose hip oil, carrot oil and honey, and is brimming with antioxidants.
‘Antioxidants’ seems to be a key word here, so if you love the stuff, the Royalty range will be the one to try: products are enhanced with black tea and bergamot essences, with notes of Earl Grey tea and cedar wood for the sophisticated scent of tea time.
Something spicier and warmer for the home, the luxurious Orientalist line again features purifying super-ingredients such as turmeric, ginger and fennel, with a faint fragrance of exotic flowers, musk perfume and cinnamon.
Packaged in black glossy bottles with gold, brass and silver accents and labelling, they perfectly match Dixon’s new range of storage and waterproof lights.
Copper-plated Spot lamps, in pendant and wall lamp styles, were designed for wet environments such as the kitchen and bathroom, featuring stainless steel, copper plated bodies and large, thick glass lens covering integrated LED bulbs. They’re functional for the environment itself, but also relatively easy to style — and easy to clean.
Modular storage boxes and lids were also created specifically for these spaces,. They were designed to be stacked and layered with space for anything from toothbrushes to cotton buds to jewellery and accessories — and Dixon’s new hand washes of course.
