Friday Musings: Tom Dixon Eclectic
Tom Dixon, the man, is a self-taught British design supremo (but more on that next Wednesday when we share the Chat in a Chair we had with Tom). Tom Dixon, the company, established in 2002, is now a British design and manufacturing powerhouse of lighting and furniture, with a commitment to innovation and a mission to revive the British furniture industry. In 2012 we fell in love with ‘Eclectic’ – the inaugural range of everyday home accessories, giftware and design objects. Each piece is designed to be used or played with, to be treasured or to be given.
The new range launched early this year has us completely captivated (again). Designed for the slightly eccentric collector’s cabinet, the modern architect’s table and the British tearoom trolley the new range incorporates copper, brass, cast iron, natural and semi-precious metals which are only improve with age. We like that he designs for designers – it’s cheeky, he knows we will love it. We defy you not to want the Tool The Golden Rule set as much as we do.
Now if you care to muster up a drum roll, we have some exciting news: our next Chat in a Chair will be with Tom Dixon himself! To celebrate we will be launching a new Instagram competition & Tom’s Chat next Wednesday. We will be giving away a Tom Dixon ‘Offcut stool’ signed by the man himself. All you will need to do is show us where you would put the stool if you won it. Guest judge will be photographer Luisa Brimble who shot Tom with us. Stay tuned.
