Bump Tea Cup: Set of 2

$120

SKU: TD-BPTC02

Average lead time: 4-6 weeks


Description

The transparent rose-colored sphere coupled with a more bulbous, inky opaque base lends these squat tea cups a quality to charm more than the visual senses. That notion of transformation via a brew and sip of tea is among the practices Tom Dixon explores with the Bump Collection. Made of hand-blown and heat-sensitive borosilicate glass, the same as laboratory beakers, Bump considers the alchemic powers of tea making, mixology and even flower arranging with this series, some double-walled, and based on conical, spherical and tubular shapes. Pair this duo with the Bump Tea Pot for an enchanting tea-time tête-à-tête.

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.
