Tom Dixon's Grand Tour: Materiality in London 

 

Materiality is an underpinning theme of what we do and that’s why cork is our current obsession.⁠

Experience a fully immersive journey in our CORK room, where cork sheets clad the wool and where our chubby-edged furniture is on display representing the versatility and innovative qualities of it as a material..⁠ By repurposing the wonder material, cork, for our range of fat-edged furniture, we’ve taken advantage of its elasticity, sound absorption and water proof nature. ⁠

Cork sheets have been supplied by Amorim, the world's biggest cork processing group.

Also on display is the new PRESS collection, a family of pendant and surface lights made from thick and transparent ribbed glass.

Press Sphere Pendant

Press Sphere Pendant

Press is a series of lights made from the thickest and most transparent glass with a satisfyingly rounded linear surface detail. Aptly named Sphere, the shape is reminiscent of shipping buoys and children’s toys. The ribbed glass creates diffusion of the light source and projects linear and stripy patterns. Bold in silhouette and simple in function, Press is manufactured by dropping massive globs of molten glass at 1,200 degrees centigrade, pressed in iron moulds under tons of pressure to create immensely durable lights.
