We set off last week for Tottenham Hale, in north London, for a tour of Cox London‘s studio and workshop, where a team of thirteen craftsmen sculpt, forge, shape and finish the beautiful and sculptural lighting and tables designed by Christopher and Nicola Cox.
Each piece in the collection is made here, all limited editions in glass and metal and in 18 finishes from bronze to silver. Bespoke lighting, furniture and mirrors are hand-crafted for interior designers and private clients with attention paid to every detail. Cox London also offer a metalware restoration service for antique dealers, repairing damaged or missing components, rewiring chandeliers and supplying canopies, hooks and patinated chain.
These deer await remodelling and restoration in the casting room.
Two replica lanterns by Cox London are indistinguishable from a third, the original antique. They are being made for a chateau in France.
These intriguing hanging branches will soon form part of a large pendant light which will be the centrepiece of Cox London‘s stand at Decorex.
Sections of metal and decorative brass grilles, left over from past projects.
A large cabinet of curiosities, for inspiration.
The antler art piece on the left was produced by Nicola Cox for an exhibition at the Farmiloe Building in Clerkenwell. Also in the shot are the Parisian Chandelier with clear, amber, and amethyst glass and a patinated wrought iron ‘Tremble Lamp’.
The ‘Caravaggio wall light’ was inspired by the painter’s ‘Supper at Emmaus’. The bronze hand is cast using the ‘cire perdue’ process.
Their Seahorse garden bench is inspired by the naturalistic designs of Victorian Coalbrookdale benches.
The Cox London workshop is open by appointment. Tel: 020-8880 3923
