 Anthony Dickens – New designer for Santa & Cole 

Santa and Cole Anthony Dickens

At Euroluce 2017 we had the pleasure of meeting Anthony Dickens (on right), Santa & Cole’s newest collaborative designer and creator of Tekio. Tekio is a Japanese word meaning adaptation – the term completely encapsulates Dickens unique design which can assume a number of forms.

Dickens has created a lighting system formed of flexible paper structures, these modules are held together with magnets for complete adjustability.
The paper used in this design has been folded to create a strong and malleable material to work with, as well as produce a soft delicate light.

Tekio was inspired by the designer’s trip to Asia back in 2010, seeing the traditional paper lanterns known Chochin as used in everyday life. These Japanese lanterns encapsulate their local cultural heritage and set of skills that have been passed down through generations. 
Dickens set out to redesign the Asian lanterns with a contemporary edge and modern LED technology but still paying homage to the radiant glow of the traditional design.

Anthony Dickens is a successful designer which has worked with a number of British brands we are very familiar with:

Innermost Origami

Origami for Innermost. A collection of angular shaped tables inspired by an oriental design for contemporary living.

Decode Halcyon

Halcyon for Decode London. Statement contemporary lighting designed for functionality and style.

Anglepoise Fifty

‘Fifty’ for Anglepoise. A homage to the original design in 1932, fixed at 50° this design pays tribute to the friendly and iconic style.

We cannot wait to see more from Anthony Dickens and the response to his new collaboration with Santa & Cole…

The Marset Discoco is a beautiful design when either on or off. Its complex simplicity provides direct downwards illumination and creates soft shadows which exude from all around the shade.

Both attractive and decorative, the Discoco has been one of Marset’s most popular designs since its release in 2009 with it incorporating a Scandinavian design with a Mediterranean style.


The Marset Discoco collection includes a wall, ceiling and suspension version. Each version is made from a collection of polycarbonate discs in white, black and gold, matt grey or matt beige. The suspension has five sizes with the largest having a 132cm diameter, and the smallest being 35cm in diameter, perfect for over a dinning table or in a living area.
