Tom Dixon has designed two collections of brass items for the home. His Cog collection references industrial machine parts and tools.
"As we scour factories worldwide, we find ourselves constantly referring to great British engineering," said Dixon. "Creating a sense of the tooled and the machined, these pieces are formed in brass-plated solid aluminium."
The range features candle holders in two sizes, cone and cylinder-shaped tea light holders, different sized trinket boxes, a candelabra and a desk tidy.
Sections of each item have been turned on a lathe to create a diamond-shaped pattern, a process known as knurling, to create a better surface for gripping.
The Arc collection contains a two-piece trivet, a bottle opener and a corkscrew, all created in solid brass using a sand-casting process. Dixon called them "science fiction-inspired futuristic simplicity combined with practical shapes that are easy to use."
A four-point star can be removed from the centre of the circular trivet so the elements can be used to protect table surfaces from hot or wet cooking utensils.
The bottle opener and corkscrew both have curved tops and embossed edges.
These new products will be exhibited at the Maison&Objet trade fair outside Paris from 24-28 January.
