    Whether used as a dining chair or side chair, the Scoop Chair Collection is all about comfort. It is generously proportioned and its scooped shape is designed to hold the sitter in a comforting embrace. The soft form of Scoop is achieved by applying upholstery to an injection‑molded hard foam shell. The copper‑plated steel legs create an unusually decorative pedestal for the sculptural form.

     

    Scoop is available in a low back version and also with oak or copper legs. Scoop is available in high back and low back versions and also with oak or copper legs.

     

    The Pylon Collection of furniture, inspired by bridges, towers and space frames, combines a hand welded copper‑plated steel rod base and a smoked glass top. These pieces are semi‑transparent and lightweight yet also form a structurally strong functional sculpture.

     

    The Pylon Collection consists of a dining table, a coffee table, a side table and a coat stand. The Pylon Collection consists of a dining table, a coffee table, a side table and a coat stand.

    The Bash Vessel Collection is formed of brass and shaped by hand into an expressive crumpled form. It can be used as an extravagant flower vase, fruit bowl or as a contemporary sculpture. Each piece is unique in shape and finished with a gold wash. The Bash Vessels makes an excellent gift for all occasions.

     

    I yearn again for more aggressive, rougher and unpredictable design. I think that the eye starts to crave and demand imperfection and personality in an object. These Bash Vessels show the marks of their making: a few extra bulges and creases that give each piece an honest attitude all its own.'Photograph: Henry Bourne/Tom Dixon Tom Dixon was yearning for more aggressive, rougher and unpredictable design.
