Originally created on a self-propelled mission to design the world’s lightest metal chair Pylon was made in small series in Dixon’s metalwork shop in the early 90s, and is now coming back powder coated in a bright royal blue.
The lattice work of 3mm diameter steel rod is triangulated for maximum strength - an exercise in pure unadorned structure.
Where suitable we leave the metals un‑lacquered allowing the material to develop a unique and rich patina through the natural process of oxidisation, which we believe enhances the beauty of the product. The rate at which a patina develops will vary according to how it is handled and the environmental factors such as humidity in the atmosphere. For all our items that are used with food, do not let the brass or copper form verdigris, which is formed when brass or copper undergoes long‑term natural oxidisation or is exposed to acidic conditions over time. Verdigris is bright green in colour, and must be completely cleaned off before the item is used.
