Quote of Note | Tom Dixon

“We work in an industry where it’s getting easier and easier to copy things. So we’re always looking for more difficult and personal textures, finishes, techniques, and finding secret recipes for glazes where you can’t really control the process. We’re kind of letting go of that absolute consistency, which a lot of manufacturers and a lot of designers strive for. We were looking at influences, from The Flinstones to Art Nouveau, to try and find something that’s a bit earthier, where each object is as different from the other as possible. It will be interesting to see how these take off and whether people get it, or if they find the natural variance difficult to handle.”

-Tom Dixon on his new Lustre series of pendant shades (pictured), the first stoneware object in his collection, in an interview with Dan Rubinstein in Surface. Dixon will debut Lustre next month at the London Design Festival.
