Bash by Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon has created a new range of products made by beating, banging and bashing large sheets of annealed brass .

BASH is inspired by the desire for more organic, spontaneous and unpredictable design in a world swamped with mass produced, consistently well-finished objects. Smacked, beaten and hammered into abstract shapes each one bears the imprint of the tools and the personality of the craftsman.

These hand-made bowls are surprisingly delicate given the aggressive hammering that is necessary for their crafting. BASH Vessels are treated with a wash which renders the surface of the brass matt and is not lacquered or treated with any sealant. This means the objects oxidise over time to create a unique patina. To prevent this, use it for decorative purposes only and protect the object from humidity and liquids, which will accelerate the process.

BASH is one of our most appropriately named products – beaten, banged and bashed from large sheets of annealed brass – they functioned so far as great bowls or serving dishes but we were missing over-scaled platters and vases. These are something to put a cherry blossom branch in, to use as an umbrella stand, or even a most extravagant waste paper basket. The tray allows for bigger parties and more ceremonial snacks.
