It's a Little Bit Weird

@ VOL 66 ON OCT 28, 2009

British designer Anthony Dickens gives us an insight into the weird things that inspire him.

In 1998 Anthony Dickens founded his London product and furniture design studio to design better relationships between people and objects, blending utility with simple narratives and re-imagining the everyday things that surround us. Initially designing and manufacturing his own range of lighting, Anthony’s work is diverse, often bridging the gap between product design and communications. Anthony has worked for Audi, Veuve Clicquot and Red Bull bringing the essence of brands to life. 

In 2006 he achieved notable success with the launch of the Origami Table, a range of dining, side and coffee tables. It won the Elle Decoration Best Table Award 2007 and is now produced by Innermost. The Anglepoise® Fifty, a light that encapsulated the Anglepoise® brand and story, was shortlisted for the Designs of the Year 2007 and is now part of the London Design Museum collection.

Other notable products include Tekiō, currently nominated for Designs of the Year 2013, the Around Clock and Kitchen Timer for Lexon and the Scoot pizza cutter for Joseph Joseph.
