Tom Dixon’s latest collection plays with a striking colour palette and dazzling finishes in typically contemporary forms. True to the British designer’s signature style, we love how each high-gloss piece is deceptively simple in structure but offers an extraordinary new patina that adds a contemporary aesthetic to any space.
Tom Dixon’s interest in metals has led him to work extensively with copper to critical acclaim but his latest range is inspired by the idea of iridescence that comes from both the manmade and natural worlds. In a series of new home accents he captures the lustrous effect of petrol on water or a dragonfly wing where the beauty of the light refracting from the surface creates mysterious surface effects.
‘Oil’ is an assemblage of mysterious multi-coloured vessels with melted edges and dented forms where no container is the same. He also extends his family of fragrances, translating the concept of ‘Oil’ into a scented candle made of woody essential oils.
‘Warp’ continues to play with light where each artefact’s organic and irregular shape has been squashed and deformed while the glass is in a molten state. Hand-finished and re-fired at a high temperature, Warp vases are a true work of art.
Tom Dixon also expands on his ‘Plum’ collection of copper and blue glass barware with new sculptural serving bowls, jugs and martini glasses and ‘Tank’ series of drinkware that double as decorative tabletop accessories.
