2023 CHOICE CAMPAIGN
‘With twenty years of exhibitions, installations, restaurants, gigs and monasteries at FUORISALONE, we felt it was time to surprise ourselves and our customers with our first ever appearance at EUROLUCE – the world’s pre-eminent lighting show at the heart of the biggest and most important design show: Salone Internazionale del Mobile.’ Tom
On 6th Tom says: “This year we want MORE. Much Much More. More colour, more variations, more unexpected combinations in floor lamps and chandeliers, table tops and textiles to give our design afficionados a deeper, wider palette of opportunity to help build perfect interiors. More flexibility in where we can illuminate and how we design, so that’s why we call this year CHOICE. The essential skill in the construction of special spaces requires judicial choices. So, we worked and worked to open up the collection to this unexpectedly vast series of possibilities.”
New collections showing for the first time at Euroluce will include new PUFF pendants and chandeliers PORTABLES lights inspired by the iconic MELT, BELL and STONE designs and CONE, along with best-selling upholstery pieces FAT and WINGBACK, now available in hundreds of colours and textiles. Each piece from the 2023 collection has the power to add a touch of the extraordinary to any space.
Inspired by inflatable geometry, PUFF is an intricate polyhedral object made of 30 metal panels, arrayed to form the rigid structure of a 45cm diameter lamp. 'The flat metal diamond shapes are expanded and ballooned as though they have been inflated thanks to the cunning incised pattern that allows a soft curve to be introduced and light to be emitted,' Tom explains. The etched, and perforated panels of PUFF create small but highly reflective facets that disperse myriad internal reflections making the inside akin to a shimmering inverted disco ball.
PUFF is a true statement light set to act as a focal point in any environment. Like all Tom Dixon most-recognisable designs, PUFF has the instant power to transform and elevate any spaces. Available in Brass and Silver, the PUFF collection includes single pendants, trio round pendant system and mega pendant system.
Introducing a NEW CATEGORY to our lighting family: the PORTABLES.
Our new MELT, STONE AND BELL Portable lights are rechargeable and can be used indoors or outdoors.
Tom says: 'If there is one thing that characterises the rapidly changing world that we inhabit, it is mobility – the way we live and work and play is dominated by an increased need for portability and flexibility – No longer do we want to be tethered to a fixed desk or power outlet, so increasingly we want our light to move with us – thankfully the magic of technology has come to the rescue with powerful batteries and low energy light sources combined to allow us to illuminate wherever we choose with complete adaptability. And it’s for this reason we have loved working on a new series of expressive rechargeable occasional lighting! Our new PORTABLE lights can be used indoors or outdoors, on a shelf, desk, bench or wherever you want to place it.'
A brand-new pedestal that can be mixed and matched with 16 of Tom Dixon iconic Tom Dixon shades including MELT and MIRROR BALL.'
About the new floor lamp, Tom explains: ‘There is a reason that we keep coming back to simple geometries – these basic shapes feel right because they are the most reduced possibility for a given job, and this is particularly evident with our new series of conical lamp bases CONE. After many attempts at designing the optimum floor lamp base, this minimal resolution is the culmination of our efforts. A perfectly executed metal cone becomes the most appropriate and elegant pedestal to support and enhance a multitude of different luminous possibilities from our range of polycarbonate lampshades.’
Endless colour and fabric options available for the iconic FAT and WINGBACK chair. Tom Dixon’s furniture icons, FAT and WINGBACK, now come upholstered in Kvadrat fabrics in hundreds of different colours.
