Description

Cloud unfolds in a whirl of rounded shapes that shimmer in highly reflective polished aluminum. Given his own background in metalworking, Tom Dixon was inspired by the vanishing skills of artisans in India—and every hammer and indentation from stretching and warping the metal is preserved on the surface, attesting to the hand-workmanship in the design. With an organic shape reminiscent of seedpods, the impressively sized tabletop piece can be used for a variety of purposes and is also dry-food safe.

Tom Dixon

“If there are rules to design, I don’t know what they are,” declares self-taught Tom Dixon. This Tunisian-born Brit started out with stints painting cartoons, as a printer, then bass player in a disco-funk outfit. But it was honing his welding skills in an auto body repair shop that led to a design breakthrough, the now revered S Chair for Cappellini. From there, after several years helming design at the iconic Habitat during its prime years, he established his eponymous brand in 2002 and with it a body of near-unrivaled work.

Tom Dixon is synonymous with the idiosyncratic sensibilities that inform so much of British aesthetics, yet by a beat all his own. He challenges with his use of materials in unexpected applications, and reworkings of otherwise conventional classics into elegant gems. His remarkable creative output covers a wide swath of categories, among them at A+R, his lighting, furniture, décor, tabletop and barware. Tom also manages to extend his exhaustive vision to hotels, restaurants—including his own at this wonderful campus at the Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross—and the odd home. For good reason this OBE’s design work now resides in the collections of the V&A, MoMA and the Pompidou.
