Tom Dixon Lighting, Furniture & Accessories in London
Tom Dixon was established in 2002. It is a British brand that designs modern, elegant and luxurious furniture and accessories for every space. With a commitment to innovation and a mission to revive the British furniture industry, the brand is inspired by the nation’s unique heritage and produces extraordinary objects for everyday use.
Tom Dixon was born in Tunisia and is known as a self-taught British designer. Tom rose to prominence in the mid 1980s as “the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture". He set up ‘Space’ as a creative think-tank and shop front for himself and other young designers. By the late 1980s, he was working for the Italian giant Cappellini for whom he designed the Iconic ‘S’ chair. The piece is a daring design for those times - a doodle of a chicken turned into an idea for a chair, that went through a series of transformations. An unusually sculptural seat that took Dixon from self production into the Italian luxury goods industry, and from there into the permanent collection of the Museum Of Modern Art in NYC. Also, his works have been acquired by museums across the globe, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Museum of Modern Art New York and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Since then, the designer decided to experiment all kinds of materials, models and patterns, in order to create innovative and unique pieces for all tastes.
In the 1990s, he became a household name with ‘Jack’, his polythylene "sitting, stacking, lighting thing" designed for his own company ‘Eurolounge’. It was a proof that the producer had a promising future ahead especially because he paid attention to materials that others didn’t consider proper for luxurious items: copper, brass, metal, wood and others.
In 2002 Dixon established his own brand under the name ‘Tom Dixon’. The company is based in Portobello, London. In 2004 Proventus, the Swedish-based private investment company, teamed up with Tom Dixon to establish Design Research, a design and product development holding company. The Tom Dixon brand launches new collections of lighting and furniture bi-annually at the Milan international furniture fair and at London Design Festival. In 2012 the company launched its first accessories range at Maison et Objet, Paris. The company’s products are sold internationally in 65 countries.
