Tom Dixon’s new furniture and lighting design collection
Tom Dixon has presented his new 2016 Collection in the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), in New York, on the heels of debuting the designs at the most recent Milan Design Week. These new bold and shiny collection have included lighting, tables, stools, and tabletop accessories. Here we would like to show you some of the pieces that were at the show. Take a look!
The new collection presentation was at The Restaurant by Caesarstone and Tom Dixon – a collaboration between the designer and the quartz-surface brand for which four kitchen units will be used to produce a menu for the visitors.
A geometric light named Curve aims to “push the boundaries of thin sheet etched metal fabrication” with its pierced shell and nickel silver coating. Its punctured shade means that light is emitted as a filtered glow.

Named Materiality, the collection was made up of five ranges, each highlighting the basic materials or “raw matter” used by the brand to create its products.
“Marble, wood and plastic, glass, iron, brass and copper are the basic building blocks that have defined our products from the outset,” said the designer. “This year, we step back and take a look at our biggest influence and an underpinning inspiration for what we do: our materials.”

Lamps in the second collection named Fade are made from a polycarbonate shade moulded into a teardrop shape.
“The teardrop shape focusses the lightbulb’s output into a satisfyingly round and luminous circle, acting as the ultimate oversized spotlight,” said the designer. “The metal finish is unusual as it graduates from completely reflective to transparent in an even fade along the body of the lamp.”

Flask is a series of three laboratory-style pendant lights. Each comprises two components – a clear rippled glass lens which produces a series of concentric, luminous rings, and a black glass shade finished in an oily iridescent colour.

“Any designer worth their salt should be concerned by the choice of materials, but for us it is a veritable obsession,” he continued. “We wanted to tell you a bit more about the substances that we shape, the raw matter that we form into these extraordinary objects for everyday use.”
