Rough & Smooth collection by Tom Dixon @ FuoriSalone 2013

Category: Design Published on 27 Mar, 2013 Tags: , , , ,

Renowed Birtish designer Tom Dixon will show the next month at MOST, during the Milan Design Week 2013, its latest collection “Rough & Smooth”.

This year we take visitors through two contrasting environments– the rough and the smooth: a story of opposites where we’ve spotted two seemingly contradictory themes in our new collection and decide that they go really rather well together” says Dixon.

“Follow a rollercoaster journey through the rough and tumble of our warehouse where fresh stock is unloaded and unpacked fresh from the manufacturing process and on through tearooms and shop windows into our spanking new show space which we furnish with our latest lighting and furniture, ranging from the textured sand-cast nickel-plated aluminium to the ultra-polished chromed pressed steel” concludes the designer.

This shimmering collection includes: CELL, a light that mimics cellular growth and can be used in multiple geometric configurations. Made from layers of minutely etched, polished brass, Cell Pendant Short and Wall Light use a Crown Brass LED lamp exclusively developed with Megaman.

BELL, an exercise in reductionism – a dome suspended over a dome formed of chrome plated pressed steel with an ultra-polished, reflective surface.


Like a mysterious chemistry experiment FLASK, a spherical object made up of two, hand- blown, glass components; a ridged and rounded base and a smoked-glass hood.

GEM, a family of angular lights, tables and mirrors, sand cast from nickel-plated aluminium, taking inspiration from the facets of cut gemstones.

SPUN calls to space age, Art Deco and Pop influences. Three pieces of ultra-expressive, occasional furniture which bring an injection of instant disco glamour.


Huge chunks of heavyweight, metallic minimalism, MASS Coat stand and Book stand are confident, over-scaled pieces of furniture with real presence and instantly recognisable expressive minimalism.


FAN dining chair, stool and table create exclamation marks in the home. Formed from machined wood spindles, the family extends from our much loved Fan Chair. ETCH LIGHT WEB STAINLESS STEEL is a vast shade with an open structure formed in mirror polished stainless steel and BASE light is now available with a highly-polished copper shade.
