Cincinnati Storage, Golden Spikes Edition

Issue 1 · New Beginnings · January 10, 2014

The son of an architect and an interior designer, John Dixon is a Cincinnati native who's helping to kickoff a design movement in his city. A furniture and homegoods designer with serious machinist skills, he worked in Paul Loebach's studio in Brooklyn before returning to Ohio. He now divides his days between the University of Cincinnati, where he's a professor of industrial design, and Losantiville, a design collective he co-founded in a 19th century beer ice house. Home to seven independent businesses that share equipment and a showroom, Losantiville is the base for Dixon's own Dixon Branded line. Check out his new line of wall hooks, entirely made by his own hand. 

Dixon Branded Intersect Valet shelf | Remodelista

 Above: The ash and brass Intersect Valet combines wall pegs and a small shelf that's perfect as a perch for a wallet, phone, pair of sunglasses, or mug. The design is 20 inches long and requires only two screws: the pegs are angled to secure it so that, as Dixon points out, "it maintains five contact points with the wall"; $148 from Dixon Branded.

Dixon Branded Intersect  Hook Rail shelf | Remodelista
