British designer at the moment, awarded at Maison et Objet Paris 2014 as “The Designer of year 2014”, Tom Dixon will make his debut at iSaloni, Milan Design Week 2014 this April with a futuristic and traditional gentleman’s collection of furniture, lighting and acessories. As for Milan Design Agenda…we’ll be at front to see this colection, under the theme “The Club”. Just for you not forget…Milan Design week 2014 dates are: from 8th April to 13th April.
Tom Dixon new collection is inspired by a “youth London club scene”, where these clubs are being reinvented and reimagined as a contemporary version of the gentleman’s hangout — a modern day home-away-from-home — describing the collection as source of influence, dixon says ‘a more recent series of experimental interiors designed for the new breed of private clubs are the reasons why we have chosen to reinvigorate the fabled british members club into a futuristic social environment.’
New products to introduce in Milan Design Week 2014 include additions to the popular ‘beat‘ family, inspired by the sculptural simplicity of traditional water vessels used in india. both table and floor lights incorporate the hand-beaten shade.
A series of drawn and sharply upholstered silhouettes, ‘the pivot collection‘ consists of a high-back chair, a low-back chair and a bar stool – all made with internal metal frame, molded foam upholstery and rotating die-cast aluminum base. Certainly at iSaloni, Tom Dixon’s collection will be a landmark in Milan Design Week 2014 books.
