The New Duo of Dyke & Dean

Sarah Lonsdale March 08, 2012

Founded by two recent graduates of St. Martins College–Ed Jackson Lloyd-Dyke and Oliver Dean–Dyke & Dean is a just-opened housewares store in Hastings, a seaside town in East Sussex currently undergoing a renaissance.

Lloyde-Dyke and Dean both studied product design, and they’ve chosen to focus on classic goods (leather pencil cases produced in the UK, Iris Hantverk brushes), interleaving them with contemporary offerings (Plumen light bulbs, Sigg lunch tins), often from independent designers. The two designed the shop interiors themselves; a preponderance of white subway tile and simple plywood display boxes have a deeply utilitarian charm. There is a placeholder website at Dyke & Dean; a good sense of the wares on sale can be had by going to the company’s Facebook page.
