British designer Tom Dixon, who brought you one of my August Must-Haves, has unveiled his 2008 collection, a range of new lighting and furniture, which was on show until yesterday at Superstudio Più in Milan during the Milan Design Week. Some of his new works include his Slab Bench and Chairs, as well as additions to his Copper and Mirrorball collections. The collection, called A Bit of Rough, derives from "a British colloquial saying that typifies down-to-earth characteristics and a straight talking, devoid of affectation attitude." I'm loving the Mirror Ball newly configured as "an array of various sized balls, tightly held in place with robust, industrial strength clamps creating an extraordinary sculptural interior lighting 'tree.'"
