Tom Dixon X Goldfinger Factory
Tom Dixon got behind the Goldfinger Factory by designing an exclusive product line, called Trellick, named after the building in which the Goldfinger Factory is situated. Coalescing traditional carpentry with cutting-edge fabrication techniques, the range has a positive social impact, an exceptional story; each piece is made by artisans and trainees from the local community. What’s more, all of the off-cuts have been used in innovative ways to create more products such as picture frames thereby minimizing their contribution to the problem of waste.
