Plum Collection: Wine Cooler
Tom Dixon has gone Plum crazy. And his Wine Cooler makes for a shining statement-piece in mirror-finish copper, part of the British designer's Plum Collection—his ode to current cocktail mania. With its updated take on majestic moderne style, the sculptural vessel brings an apt sense of ceremony while keeping champagne and other vintages chilled. When not pressed into service for the drinks hour, fill it with masses of flowers. A standout centerpiece on the bar or at the table, it's an entertaining essential from Tom's lineup of barware par excellence.

“If there are rules to design, I don’t know what they are,” says self-taught British designer Tom Dixon. “I just have ideas and I want to see what happens if I put them out there.” Tom’s errant first stab at creativity was playing bass in a 1980s disco group. Then a stint honing his welding skills in a auto body repair shop eventually led to his design breakthrough for Cappellini with the iconic S Chair. With products in more than 60 countries today, his contemporary lighting, furniture, tabletop and barware ranges and accessories have been “put out there” to wide acclaim.
Based in Portobello, London, the Tom Dixon brand launches new collections of lighting and furniture biannually in Milan and London. “What’s interesting about the modern world [is that] you don’t need to attract large amounts of people globally to be a successful designer,” Tom says. “You can be quite focused and do specific work and people will come to you if they’re attracted to it.”
