At Maison & Objet, copper and brass stationery by Tom Dixon evolved the British designer’s collections for the study together with robust artefacts and sculpural vases designed for the bookworm or the prolific writer.
Tom Dixon says: “We continue our exploration into cabinets of curiosities with a new range of accessories designed to add a touch of glamour and sophistication to the modern desktop and the study”.

CUBE series includes minimalist and blocky design artefacts made from zinc alloy and finished with a copper plate. Stripped back to its bare essentials, the collection includes a stapler, a desk tidy, a pen and a tape dispenser.
TROVE is a series of black cast iron containers with magnifying pressed glass lids. “Not a conventional decorative accessory, more a multifunctional design artefact that can masquerade as a treasure box” comment Tom Dixon.
The generously proportioned TANK vases are made from mouth-blown clear glass with hand-painted copper detailing. The strong silhouettes is perfect for long-stemmed roses, small bunches or larger flowers and designed to create table top architecture.
Inspired by the great British engineering COG black-ink rollerball pen and pen block are the new addition to the stationery and tableware family inspired by cogs’ design.
