The contradiction of glass.
Mouth-blown, double layered black and white glass has been acutely cut back to define a series of circular motifs.
Artisanal glass makers in India carefully carved away layers of glass in a design process that explores the opaque, the translucent and the transparent. The intention was for the chunky and heavy glass to take on an ethereal lightness.
Tom Dixon, even without a formal education, is definitely one of the most important names in British design.
Whether as the owner of a store that sold not only emerging and experimental brand objects such as Droog and Inflate but also his own production, or later as Head of the Design Department and later Creative Director of Habitat, Tom Dixon demonstrates not only a keen talent and aesthetic sense but also a strong commercial instinct, a rare mixture in the world of design, and which inevitably leads to the foundation in 2002 of the brand with its name, and which created instant classics such as the Mirror Ball and Beat Light lamps.
With an exclusively British soul and never forgetting its values and traditions, Tom Dixon and its Design Research Studio are committed to innovation, through the production of extraordinary objects for everyday use.
These masterfully designed and produced objects populate some of the best known hotels and restaurants, but also shops and private residences.
