Tom Dixon Studio’s Latest Super Glossy Collection ‘The New, The Silver, The Black, and The Blue’

Tom Dixon Studio has launched a super flashy color palette with a rigorous application of a super glossy black, a sharp, precise stainless steel, and a pop art electric blue. These are new elements in a design toolkit and become the building blocks of a future interior design aesthetic.

“The studio’s electric blue becomes the latest and most visible metallic yet. They have used latest techniques of metal finishing and the hard-wearing layer of blue on the Bell table light is created through the futuristic technique of Physical Vapour Deposition. The Copper shade has been stripped and dipped in vibrant blue glaze with extraordinary effect. These weightless helium balloons like orbs have a touch of Jeff Koons showmanship,” says the studio.

The studio further writes: “Fetishistic glossy Black has been engineered in the studio’s German partner factories, giving them traditional Japanese lacquer furniture and Bauhaus interiors look with their lustrous black lacquer. The Copper pendants and Bell Table light are transformed by the application of the slick glossy black with a high-shine silver interior to produce a greater light quality than ever before.”

The latest color of the Melt pendant is black smoke. This lamp is now coated with a layer of translucent pigment that transforms this unique lamp into an even more magical object as the studio experiment with the boundaries of luminosity, semi transparence, and reflectivity.  

The studio made space-age and luminous “Silver” with the reflective finish Bell table light and they also updated “Scoop” chair – high and low – with high-shine silver legs. They also bring back “Top,” a series of ethereal satellites that filter a warm light through pierced sheets of stainless steel. Hygienic, long lasting stainless steel is polished, pierced, and formed into an understated illumination.

Fifteen years on, Tom Dixon is now widely celebrated global force in interior design across his studios in New York, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. The designer is most recognized for the sculptural qualities and engineered materiality of his works.
