tom dixon will launch his new collection as part of milan design week 09.
here is a preview of the products that will be on display. utility is the theme
of dixon’s exhibition this year. the new pieces include ‘pressed glass’, ‘spot tables’,
‘block table’, ‘spot tables’ and ‘screw tables’.


‘screw table’

‘screw table’ is made from one heavy cast iron tripod and a solid
marble top. the industrial strength aluminum screw allows for multiple
heights by simply spinning the top.


‘screw table’ – detail


‘spot table’ series

the spot tables are enamel coated tables that consist of a heavy weighted base with
two different height stems with either a square or a round top. coated in heavy duty
vitreous enamel, an ultra hygienic and industrial process in which particles of glass
are sprayed on to cast iron, and then fired at furiously high temperatures.


‘block table’

the block table has electroplated copper legs and granite top, flat sided, allowing tables
to be placed together in multiple configurations. the stone surface is heat resistant
and treated to minimize grease marks. there are adjustable feet to protect the floor surface
and allow for uneven floors.


‘pressed glass’ series

the ‘pressed glass’ series are available in three shapes; tube, bowl and lens.
the collection bears the sinuous marks and imperfections of the manufacturing
process.

for CARTIER tokujin yoshioka designed also two perfume bottles ‘moon fragments’ which
take the form of a disk and a sphere shape. both are included in the show.

‘I had in mind poems of the french jean cocteau, one of the most multi-talented artists of
the 20th century,
and following the ‘memory’ title of the exhibition, I designed these perfume
bottles and named them ‘moon fragments’, to me they symbolize the future of CARTIER.’

Into the Open: Positioning Practice is the official U.S. representation at the 11th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition explores how architects, urban researchers, and community activists are meeting the challenges of creating new work in response to contemporary social conditions. The exhibition also addresses factors challenging traditional methods of architecture, such as shifting socio-cultural demographics, changing geo-political boundaries, uneven economic development, and the explosion of migration and urbanization. At the same time, it will advocate for an expanded conception of architectural practice and responsibility. The sixteen practitioners included, all of whom actively engage communities in their work, demonstrate multifaceted responses to social and environmental issues.

Into the Open: Positioning Practice is presented by Parsons The New School for Design, in collaboration with Slought Foundation and PARC Foundation, with media partner Architect’s Newspaper. The exhibition and related public programs are coordinated by Laetitia Wolff of futureflair, and director of strategic alliances at Parsons; with exhibition and graphic design by Ken Saylor and Project Projects.
