"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," said a statement from Dixon.

"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," said Dixon, who has recently released a set of lights and home accessories based on mechanical cogs.

To achieve a different look to his spun-brass tea set, the designer made the Brew range from stainless steel.

The high-gloss finish of the products is created by applying a thin copper film to the metal, creating an even reflective surface across the exterior of the products.

All the items fit neatly onto the circular tray, with espresso cups stacking on top of one another to save space.

"Brew acknowledges coffee making as a form of art and coffee drinking as an elevated occasion, a ceremonial performance that merits time and reverence," Dixon said.

"The resourceful design entrepreneur in the modern age is now committed not just to the creation of an artefact, but also to the communication, contextualisation and commercialisation of their ideas," said Dixon.
