Tom Dixon designs Brew coffee set of reflective copper products
British designer Tom Dixon has unveiled a set of copper-covered items for brewing and serving coffee.
The Brew coffee set is designed to include all the tools needed for making the caffeinated drink.
"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.
The set includes a tin for storing coffee beans or grounds, a scoop, a cafetiere, a stovetop espresso maker, a milk pan, espresso cups, a biscuit tin and a serving tray.
"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.
Dixon – one of the UK's best-known designers – has used copper in projects ranging from stationery to hotel lobby interiors.

In Milan earlier this year, he debuted a range of furniture and lighting that was sold directly from his exhibition at an abandoned theatre.
"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.
