Tom Dixon Debuts PRESS Collection

Tom Dixon Debuts PRESS Collection

Tom Dixon has unveiled PRESS, a collection of heavyweight grooved vases, bowls and candleholders made of fat, chunky coils of pure and clear transparent glass. The industrially pressed glass artifacts are designed and engineered to catch and refract light, and to last forever.

Bold in silhouette and simple in function, they are manufactured by dropping big globs of molten glass at 1,200 degrees centigrade and pressed in two or three-part iron molds to create immediately familiar silhouettes.
