The independent design festival Clerkenwell Design Week unfolded in London last week, with events in showrooms throughout the neighborhood. Product designer Tom Dixon collaborated with Andrew Baughen, a vicar of St. James’ Church, on renovations for the area church, including the installation of Dixon’s Curve chandelier in the main space. The 17th-century church received donated new lighting and furniture from the brand’s latest collections.

Three collections, which Dixon recently debuted at Milan and launched last week, are now in permanent residence in the church: Flask, a series of three pendant lights inspired by the sharp and functional geometry of chemical laboratory glassware; Curve, a curved geometrical light; and Fade, a teardrop-shaped light cannon.
