Tom Dixon has unveiled two new collections for A/W'20 - Puck glassware and Mill grinders, available starting September 2020.
Puck is a collection of bar glasses made of mouth-blown glass with a hint of smoke color. For this collection, Tom sat down with the Coal Office restaurant team for a long and intense investigation into the perfect shape and proportion for contemporary cocktail glassware.
The process involved stripping away as much non-essential detail to create something that's more minimal, heavy-weight and authoritative in mixology glassware. Using the basic forms of geometry, such as cylinders, cones and spheres, Puck is a collection that's resilient enough to survive in a professional cocktail environment, anchored with a satisfyingly thick base that's reminiscent of game pucks.
Mill is a set of grinders with expressed handles and sleek conical silhouettes made of stainless steel. The forms have been designed with longevity and quality in mind, particularly in the grinding mechanism as there is nothing more frustrating than a pepper mill that wears down or clogs. The Mill vessels are designed with a robust mechanism and ergonomic shape allowing for effortless grinding.
