Tom Dixon x GF, The Trellick Collection
In the summer 2016 we were thrilled to collaborate with British design icon, Tom Dixon. Who better for Goldfinger Factory to pair with than a renowned innovator and lover of salvaged and reborn materials?
We’ve been known to reclaim, revive, and relove even the most exhausted looking timber; rescuing wood from landfill to craft our beautifully functional designs.
For the collaboration, Tom Dixon designed an exclusive and limited edition range of products for us, which he named the Trellick Collection. His designs were lovingly crafted by our team in our workshop at the foot of the Trellick Tower. Each made from oak and pine, The Trellick Tray, the Trellick Bench, the Trellick Table and both Trellick Planters cast bold silhouettes.
The Trellick Collection was launched in September 2016 as part of London Design Festival at Tom Dixon’s Dock Kitchen at Portobello Dock. Two sets were made, one for the Tom Dixon showroom and one for the Goldfinger Factory showroom. We launched sales through our campaign on Crowdfunder, raising close to £25k, thanks to the generous support of our community, and a very generous £10k pledge from Santander. The funds raised from this collection helped us generate crucial income, enabling us to sustainably support our creative community, and to train local young people in a skilled trade through paid apprenticeships.
Our work celebrates the grain of the wood, the care of a perfect join, the pleasingly tactile finish. We believe in the diamond in the dust because we know that people, just like the materials we use, are filled with potential.
