Art deco-style Form tea set by Tom Dixon

Deco

When you talk modern design, the name Tom Dixon is never far from anyone's lips. But this Form tea set is anything but contemporary, throwing out a very different art deco vibe.



The set is fairly extensive, consisting of a jug, tea caddy, milk jug, sugar dish, spoon and tray, all very stylised with the kind of curves and sharp angles you would expect from the kind of high-end 1930s tea set that might have spent its life in an art deco house.

It's all made from spun brass, which is polished and then dipped in a warm-gold wash to give a 'subtle matt' surface. There's also a nice touch with the Bakelite detailing, with an etched logo on the base finishing things off.

Doesn't come cheap though. Prices vary between £50 and £140 per piece.
