Rather than exhibiting prototype products earmarked for sale later in the year, Dixon is showing brand new pieces that will be available to purchase on site. “The resourceful design entrepreneur in the modern age is now committed not just to the creation of an artefact, but also to the communication, contextualisation and commercialisation of their ideas,” said Dixon.

“Translucent when on and mirror-finish when off, it emits an attractive, mildly hallucinogenic light,” said a statement from Dixon.

Another new spherical pendant lamp called Lens is made up from a series of prismatic glass triangles, which reference the curved Fresnel lens used in lighthouses to emit beams over long distances.  The glass portions refract the internal light source onto surrounding surfaces, creating an effect Dixon describes as “disco glamour”.

Dixon will also debut a seating range that features designs based on the 17th-century wingback chair, with curved lobes on either side of the back, and the smaller 18th-century balloon-back chair that is nipped in to create a waist just above the arms.

Both pieces are supported by solid oak or copper legs and upholstered with fabrics from Danish company Kvadrat. The Wingback range also includes an ottoman and a sofa. “These refined hybrids have been updated and redefined for the grandest banquets or as chairs for the fireplaces of members clubs or your living room ” said Dixon’s statement
