â—? Tom Dixon has launched a collection of marble sculptures

British designer Tom Dixon has launched a new collection of marble sculptures inspired by his frequent trips to India. Called Rock, the seven-piece collection is described as a series of “weighty, sculptural

candle holders, round, long and oblong serving boards and a 2.5 KG dumbbell. The pieces are made from green marble,

and functional artifacts,� and consists

to resemble a forest landscape, and each

of tealight holders, medium and large

piece boasts a pattern and texture unique to the piece of marble it was carved from, giving each one an individualistic quality. “Rock is a collection of interactive, playful and stackable sculptures,� says Dixon. “The design inspiration for Rock was my many trips to India, observing the hand lathe workers of Rajasthan and Agra. I wanted to create simple shapes that could be hand turned on the lathe and constructed like playful children’s building blocks.�
