Newly arrived at 2Modern—and just in time for Valentine's Day—is the impossibly pretty Bump Collection of tabletop glassware by Tom Dixon. A collection inspired by purely utilitarian containers—the glass beakers, tubes, and measuring devices used in science labs—Bump is a suite of borosilicate glass vessels that, while undeniably functional, aims to be irresistible eye candy for the contemporary tabletop scene.
A hand crafted collection comprised of teapot, decanter, drinking glasses, and vases, Bump is notable for its delicately voluptuous forms—a combination of bulbous shapes and slender protrusions—each heart-stoppingly rendered in shades of pale pink and grey. Borosilicate glass, a double walled glass valued for its durability and ability to withstand high temperatures, is usually seen in its standard colorless state, but, through experimentation and the manipulation of raw materials, Bump has been given its defining rosy hue.
As Tom Dixon explains, "Delicately handmade with subtle levels of pink and grey tonal translucency, Bump offers an elegant approach to the alchemical processes of tea making, mixology and floral arrangements."
