Tom Dixon’s latest collection for Milan in a few weeks is called Rough and Smooth with eight new product families. Dwell wants all of them. For more Tom Dixon products, see his 2013 Stockholm design week pendant lamp, and classic copper shade light.
The Rough and Smooth collection was inspired by the studio’s exploration of texture and material weight in contrast with the surfaces created by extreme polishing, sharp lines, and modern manufacturing. Each of the eight product families explores a different shape, such as “Gem,” a line of angular lights, tables, and mirrors (pictured).

Like the Stooges, bears, and wise men before them, Tom Dixon’s enamel vessels—Trio, Quad, and Pentad—join the ranks of illustrious threesomes. The cast-iron containers can rest naturally on any of their flat facets.
From lunch at the kids’ table to romantic dinner for two with a simple spin of the solid marble top, Dixon’s industrial-strength aluminum screw allows this table to achieve great new heights, and the heavy cast-iron base will ensure it doesn’t sway.
In a world of Flickr sets and Google image searches, Tom Dixon’s new photo-heavy book may not pack the same punch it would have two decades ago, when a picture of Cornish miners extracting tin couldn’t be dialed up on demand. Regardless, this hefty tome visually connects the dots between finished domestic product and the world writ large, and Dixon’s amiable character comes through in his digestible introductions and a series of interwoven comics.
Each shade in the Pressed Glass collection by Tom Dixon is made by compressing molten glass into a hollow mould which is then annealed in a kiln. This process does not allow for any intervention so small variations make each shade unique and beautiful.
