Tom Dixon – Maison & Objet 2017

By In/Out
November 16, 2017

Avant-garde British designer Tom Dixon has recently launched three new collections at Maison & Objet in Paris. Dixon’s industrial background and influence is particularly apparent in his latest collections, titled ‘Bump’, ‘Brew’ and ‘Tank’, which includes covetable items of vessels and accessories. As a self-taught designer with a background in welding, Dixon’s designs have a unique imprint, setting him apart from other designers in his field. Continuously experimenting with different materials and applying new contexts to familiar objects, Dixon creates purpose and injects a new life into each of his product designs.

‘Bump’ is a series of glass vessels which have been made using borosilicate, a heat-resistant glass traditionally used to make science equipment. The collection includes a teapot, teacup, water jug and vase in various sizes, featuring organic shapes, repeated forms and subtly tinted in pink and grey hues. The items resemble objects found in a laboratory, turning tea time into the likes of a scientific experiment.

Bump is a series of minimalist, borosilicate vessels designed to serve as the ritualistic instruments of every day drinking and hosting – Tom Dixon

The beauty of this collection is that products can be transformed to be used for other purposes, such as containers for special trinkets or a vase for flowers. Delicate in appearance yet robust in function, ‘Bump’ is a series of objects that act as ideal gifts for the person who has everything.

‘Brew’ has been designed with coffee lovers in mind. The collection is available in three gift sets; The Cafetiere, The V60 and The Stovetop, in mirror black with a stainless steel interior. ‘Brew’ is sleek, modern and compact, carefully considering the art and appreciation of producing good quality coffee.

‘Tank’ is a collection of sophisticated glassware available in two gift sets; Decanter and Whiskey. The glassware has been mouth-blown and shaped in graphite moulds to create elegant and organic forms that indulge the drinker’s experience. Glass is a favoured material for Dixon – “Glass is a truly miracle material. Long-lasting, transparent or in beautiful translucent colours, hygienic, recyclable, tough, affordable or precious.” The simplicity of the design and dark tone of the glass are standout features, making them a perfect addition to any home cabinet.
