at maison et objet 2017 in paris, tom dixon debuts a collection of borosilicate glass vessels that seek to become ritualistic instruments of every day drinking and serving. ‘BUMP’ includes minimalist vases, a pair of tall and short water glasses, a tea set, and a water jug, each delicately handmade with subtle levels of pink and grey translucency. the family provides a simple and sophisticated way to think about and participate in the alchemical processes of tea making, mixology and floral arrangements.

dixon’s ‘BUMP’ at maison & objet is an exercise in the manipulation of conical, spherical and tubular shapes. the craft of double walled glassmaking, combined with these geometries, generates surprising forms that play with laters, transparency and translucence. the ‘BUMP‘ family is made of borosilicate, a heat-resistant glass commonly found in science labs and usually seen in a colorless state. here, the material’s rare translucent pinks and smoky black hues are highlighting, and have been and manipulated into delicate shapes. mouth-blown into an engineered graphite mould, the resulting forms are light weight, durable and able to withstand high heats.
