It's a Little Bit Weird

BY ANTHONY DICKENS
@ 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.

Design Against Crime

BY SPIKE SPONDIKE
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 09, 2009

Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?

Design Against Crime

What if your chair could prevent theft? In today's Presentation of the Day "Design Against Crime" from PKN London Vol. 1, designer at the Design Against Crime Research Centre Spike Spondike argues that designers and criminals have a lot in common: they look for opportunities, they're risk-inclined, and they have a "wonky way of thinking." She asks: Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?

From kitchen tools in the shape of children's building blocks to a small wooden table that can be hung over the railing of your balcony, his small projects all incorporate -- to a certain degree -- an element of fun.
