Tom Dixon

There are few limitations when it comes to Tom Dixon’s inspiration. In the 1980s, he was inspired to take up welding (a precursor to his synonymous furniture line) in a South London auto body shop. Later, a sketching of a chicken led to his famed S-chair. Reconfiguring the industrial aesthetic of Modernists like Jean Prouvé into a post modern landscape, Tom Dixon pieces are sculptural marvels, seemingly driven by surreal fantasy. But bedecked in posh finishes like chrome and copper these fantasies become nothing but avant-garde icons.
