A series of stunning marbling patterns with an unknown origin adorn the latest collection of design-forward objects by Tom Dixon. Debuted at the Maison&Objet fair in Paris, the 'Swirl' collection includes candle holders, bookends and even a vase. What is absolutely captivating about this stylish capsule is its textured aesthetic.
Each artistic object boasts a curiosity-spiking marbling pattern, yet Tom Dixon has not revealed the technique used during the production. One might argue that this generates even more attention from the audience as designers begin to speculate the probable processes for reaching the mysterious effect.
The pattern is described to "resemble 3D marbled paper," however, what is puzzling is that the objects -- from the candle holders to the bookends, have the weight of stone.
