Tom Dixon's Grand Tour: Materiality in London

We launch the new MASS collection, a family of super polished solid brass tables, coat and book stands made from the most familiar unit in furniture construction, the plank.. Proudly designed and manufactured in the UK, the collection’s materiality of solid brass extrusions allows it to be interpreted in multiple configurations.

We wanted to create something super-basic in terms of construction so that it’s reduced, minimal, and logical, but the opposite in aesthetics, in that it is extremely precious and desirable. ⁠The result is huge chunks of heavyweight, metallic, minimalist furniture, with over-scaled forms and instantly recognisable sculptural silhouettes.

Designed exclusively for the Materiality exhibition, a limited-edition MASS 4-Poster bed is on display in the Gallery. Adorning the MASS bed is Kvadrat’s new Sisu fabric, a thickly woven checked upholstery designed by Nanna Ditzel and Danh Vo. Kvadrat’s Sisu fabric complements the warm brass tones of the MASS family

Mass Dining Table

A family of super-polished solid brass tables manufactured in the UK and made from one single extruded box section of brass. By using the most familiar unit in furniture construction – the plank – and presenting a series of familiar objects in a highly polished gold hued metal, Dixon manages to make domestic archetypes into monumental heavyweight sculpture. The rectangular tube is used in a multitude of configurations and will eventually be presented as a made to measure construction set, with a series of predetermined junctions that allow architects and interior designers the liberty to construct their own Mass artefact.
