WATCH: Highlights from the world of architecture and design.

Instantly recognised for its trippy marbled patterning, the Swirl collection of objects by Tom Dixon has welcomed new larger-scaled cast members. Joining the psychedelic line-up of existing accessories, which includes candleholders, bookends and vases that were released as early as 2019 at Maison & Objet in Paris, the British design house has introduced a series of tables seemingly plucked from fantasyland. Made from the same mesmerising material as their siblings, each table in the latest release has a distinct silhouette, unique colouration and pop-inspired sensibility.

The family of geometric forms that make up Swirl are engineered to be collected and stacked upon one another to create multidimensional, functional sculptures. Their fluid markings in dazzling colours are born from an intriguing manufacturing process that aims to replicate the look of naturally occurring marbles, a luxurious material that is frequently used in other collections by Tom Dixon.

For Swirl, the design brand salvages powdered stone matter – a byproduct of the marble processing industry – and combines it with pigments and resin to create blocks of solid material. Once cured, these individual blocks can be sawn, sliced and spun on a lathe. The combined process gives the resulting products a feeling of weightiness, their lustrous surfaces and an endless array of patterning that shares a resemblance with marbled paper.

Swirl by Tom Dixon is available in Australia from Living Edge.
