As Tom Dixon Furniture reminds us, when it comes to design, less can be infinitely more fun.
There are few limitations when it comes to Tom Dixon’s inspiration. In the 1980s he was inspired to take up welding in a South London auto body shop, a skill which came in handy when he started his synonymous furniture line soon after. Later, a sketching of a chicken led to his famed S-chair. Reconfiguring the industrial aesthetic of Modernists like Jean Prouvé in a post modern landscape, Tom Dixon pieces are sculptural marvels, seemingly driven by surreal fantasy.
