Sharp clean and light, the Alloy scent and the metal share common core characteristics. A woody fragrance, created exclusively for Tom Dixon, blending vibrant wood notes with cool metallic facets, held in a gravity cast aluminium vessel. The container is made from a steel mould, with machined edges, sand cast and machined smooth on top and bottom. Made from 100% aluminium, they are completely raw, straight out of the mould so that sand grains and tool marks are visible on the surface. The lid is cut from an aluminium rod and Tom Dixon branding is embossed as part of the mould.
Our candles are made in the UK from 50% natural ingredients (50% natural soy, 50% paraffin wax) and contain 10% fragrance - a much higher level compared to the standard 1-3%, meaning the scent is stronger and will last longer. Burn time: 70 hours.
The vessels are lacquered on the inside so they have life after use although they cannot be used with food. Not dishwasher safe. Do not use abrasive agents as this will damage the surface. Wash in warm soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.
Materiality is an underlying theme in all our work, from the rawness of cast metals and precious stone to the surface possibilities of vacuum metallised plastics or the malleable quality of molten glass. Materialism gives an extra tactile dimension to the objects we mould, carve and cast, creating a synergy between container and scent in Cork, Terrazzo, Stone, Alloy and Oil.
