Anthony Dickens

Anthony is an award winning product designer and founder of Studio Make Believe, a company that designs objects to extend brand engagement and solve problems. He works across and number of industries including Drinks, Automotive, Fashion, Homeware and Health for some of the world’s leading brands including Red Bull, Jose Cuervo, Audi, Joseph Joseph, Red or Dead and Budweiser.

Anthony is working with Made by the Forge to carefully develop our lighting collection and build a range of unique and timeless designs. He has always had a passion for lighting, winning his first design award for a chandelier at the UK’s graduate design exhibition New Designers in 1997. His Anglepoise® Fifty, a light that encapsulated the Anglepoise® brand and story, was shortlisted for the Design Museum's Designs of the Year 2007 and is now part of their permanent collection.

Anthony’s design approach seeks to highlight the unique qualities of the materials and processes used to make objects. His designs reduce complexity and strip away anything superfluous, believing that simple is both beautiful and sustainable. This approach is helping us create timeless lighting using traditional techniques and design details unique to the forging process.
