Yesterday saw a quick trip up to see what Tom Dixon  has been up to.  Always coming up with fresh and exciting new ideas, there was so much that caught my eye it was difficult to know where to start.  Here are some of my favourites.

First off, bright shiny things you'd like to pop in your pocket and disappear with (not that I did of course)....

a small version of the famous Jack light, cast in copper and perfect for a shelf, 
the aptly named Cast Mini Jack Copper
little copper and gold beakers, perfect for sipping from or just looking at

beautiful delicate beaten bowls - bitter chocolate exterior and burnt gold interior - gorgeous

and this fabulous solid copper dish, hammered with an hexagonal pattern 
and beaten finish, entitled the Hex Bowl
On the more sober side, these little gems also went on the wishlist..........
Simon Hasan's boiled leather and resin vases.  They are so tactile and smell fantastic!
Knackered floorboards?  Nope - super clever wallpaper from Piet Hein Eeek
(with Tom's brilliant Marble Knob!)

and another version.  So realistic it's kind of spooky (good spooky though)
And that's it from the Dock visit - but then again, there was 
THIS I spotted when leaving.....
Aston Martin have a showroom next to Tom's shop and how adorable is this little monster - want one now!
Aston Martin does SMART car (I miss my little Smart but this would do
very nicely thank you)!
