Curve

We were asked to design new outer casings for Sonos speakers and in doing so we explored laser cutting and hydraulic punching processes to create amazing steel forms. The findings from this project, and a desire to push the boundaries of thin sheet metal etching led to Curve. The light has a progressive geometric form that casts a warm, comforting ambient light with strong shadows and patterns.

Curve is formed using a very difficult process best described as ƒ__advanced metal origamiƒ__.

Curve's Soft Nickel Silver Coating is unique to Tom Dixon and a new, softer, more feminine addition to our palette. Created using electro plated brass (dipping metal in water with electric current) the result is non-reflective satin silver that fits in many environments. The complex process of creating the Curve shape involves folding seven individual metal sheets into complex concentric curvatures and tabbing them together by hand.
