This January at the MAISON&OBJET fair in Paris, Tom Dixon delves deeper into SUPER TEXTURE – the name given to their first ever collection of textiles, and MATERIALISM – the most recent innovation in room scents.
Continuing the exploration into the construction of cloth, SUPER TEXTURE dives deep into the weave, the knits and the knots, adding colour and extra texture to the SOFT and BOUCLE ranges. Burgeoning adventures begin in print, in embroidery and in the hand tufting and looping of wool with young emerging talent to produce new families: ABSTRACT, PAINT and GEO. Three new colours are added to the existing range – Khaki, Wine and Electric Blue for a reinvigorated exercise in colour stacking.
Heat-affected CORK, and marble studded TERRAZZO provide stimulus for two new and diverse scents this season – Dark smoky wood juxtaposed with fresh zesty fig. Brutalist and Primitive, these vessels offer a new sensory experience to the materialism collection.
Also introduced is PLANT, a double headed vase designed for floral ecosystems, and a miniature edition of the SPIN table candelabra. Both exploit the process of making, from the generous possibilities of molten glass to the heavy-weight iron materiality of British engineering.
All the new collections will be shown for the first time at MAISON&OBJET PARIS from January 19 to 23, 2018. They will also be available on stores worldwide.
