Anthony Dickens is currently based in London, UK, where he runs his own design studio.
The essence of Anthony’s design is driven by a desire to create simple yet functionally innovative and thought-provoking objects. He discovers new ways to express traditionally designed objects, subverting archetypal forms and re-imagining the everyday things that surround us. For example, creating a clock that expresses time in a more natural and representative way by displaying it in a linear fashion rather than a circular motion, or updating an Anglepoise task light to reflect today’s way of working on illuminated computer screens.
He divides his output between domestic and commercial product design. Domestic products include the ‘Origami’ table range (Elle Decoration Award for best table), the Anglepoise ‘Fifty’ light (shortlisted for the Design Museum’s Brit Insurance Product of the Year) and the ‘Around’ clock for Lexon. Anthony has been commissioned by commercial companies to bring brands to life. Projects include products for Red Bull and Veuve Clicquot and a range of homeware for Audi, made from parts of a TT car.
Anthony is also a founding partner of Together Creative, a collaborative network of designers, architects, film makers, illustrators and writers who work in flexible teams to provide bespoke brand communications solutions for a diverse range of clients.
