Tom Dixon launched Bump – a series of minimalist, borosilicate forms designed to serve as ritual objects of the everyday drinking and hosting. Delicately handmade with subtle levels of pink and grey translucency, Bump offers an elegant approach to the art of floral arranging, mixology and tea making.


The articles for measuring, brewing, steaming, cooling, pouring and preserving explore the transformative alchemy of curious instruments and chemical reactions. Inspired by laboratory apparatus, Bump is an exercise in the manipulation of the conical, spherical and tubular building blocks, of double walled glassmaking and a play of transparency and translucence.

Mouth–blown into an engineered graphite mould, Bump is made of borosilicate, the heat resistant glass familiarly found in science laboratories. Light weight, durable and able to withstand high temperatures, borosilicate glass is usually seen in a colourless and clear state. Here it is tinted in pinks and glossy black that have been fused, blown and manipulated into delicate shapes.
