The Manzoni space is a collaboration between Dixon’s Design Research Studio and JLK Design Studio. The main purpose behind the opening of this restaurant is the fact that Dixon and his team intended to have a more permanent presence in Milan instead of showcasing year after year in different places. As Tom Dixon states in the official page:

There is nothing dustier than a conventional lighting and furniture showroom. But with The Manzoni, people are able to experience our new collections in an active context.’

One of the main highlights of this establishment is Fat, Tom Dixon’s new upholstery chair range made for a different purpose when it comes to comfort: essentially hug the human body and allow the subject to try many different sitting positions. The chair is made from moulded foam with a metal leg launching in high gloss black lacquer and made to order upholstery.
