Comforting to hold in the hand and shimmering darkly with fiery spirits, designer Tom Dixon adds a pair of handsome mouth-blown whiskey glasses to match his Tank decanter. Handmade in Poland, the drinkware has a faded black finish with an appealing modernist character. The Tank glasses duo takes its sculptural cue from the functional shapes and volumes of scientific glassware. Each featuring a hot-cut edge and an etched Tom Dixon logo, the set comes in giftable packaging.

“If there are rules to design, I don’t know what they are,” says self-taught British designer Tom Dixon. “I just have ideas and I want to see what happens if I put them out there.” Tom’s errant first stab at creativity was playing bass in a 1980s disco group. Then a stint honing his welding skills in a auto body repair shop eventually led to his design breakthrough for Cappellini with the iconic S Chair. With products in more than 60 countries today, his contemporary lighting, furniture, tabletop and barware ranges and accessories have been “put out there” to wide acclaim.
Based in Portobello, London, the Tom Dixon brand launches new collections of lighting and furniture biannually in Milan and London. “What’s interesting about the modern world [is that] you don’t need to attract large amounts of people globally to be a successful designer,” Tom says. “You can be quite focused and do specific work and people will come to you if they’re attracted to it.”
