Tom Dixon was definitely the big surprises in Milan Design Week 2019. Aside from the opening of The Manzoni (the new 100-cover restaurant) in Milan, the brand also introduced a very special element: meet the Fat chair!
Milan Design Week is definitely the Milan trendsetter in regards to the top trends of interior design. An offer that combines quality and technology, the result of the creativity of the best companies in the sector.
This will be a vibrant period to the Milan City between 16-21 JUNE 2020!
Fat is Tom Dixon’s new upholstery chair range made for a different purpose when it comes to comfort: hug the human body and allow the subject to try many different sitting positions. This piece is made from molded foam with a metal leg launching in high gloss black lacquer and made to order upholstery.
The material used in the upholstery not only makes this furniture piece comfortable but also flexible, allowing the user to move more freely while sitting down. All of this while the chair still maintains a sort of “humorous silhouette and a reductionist aesthetic”, as the brand puts it.
Not only that, but the Fat chair was manufactured in Europe, hand finished and upholstered by experienced craftsmen. It will be available as a dining chair, high stool and lounge chair.
Aside from the Fat collection, Tom Dixon will also be introducing Spring and Opal. The first one is a series of three pendant lamps made up of stainless-steel strips, while the second is will consist of two pendant lights, two-floor lights, and a surface light, all of them made with lighting translucent globes made of tinted white Opalescent polycarbonate.
This new establishment by Tom Dixon will consist of both a restaurant and a showroom that will show some new collections and other iconic pieces of the brand. The main purpose behind the opening of this restaurant is the fact that Tom Dixon and his team wanted to have a more permanent presence in Milan instead of showcasing year after year in different places. In the words of the brand:
“(…)We wanted to look at different ways of being present in Milan. With the city being so active and engaging right now, it is the right time to forget being temporary and build something permanent. Just like in London, we don’t think it’s enough to just have a showroom (…)”
