17 years of Tom Dixon at Milan Design Week
Each year we’ve tended to avoid the main exhibition halls and sort out interesting and unusual venues throughout the city of Milan to show our latest innovations and extraordinary objects. We’ve collaborated, gone it alone, got caught in volcanic dust storms. We’ve operated cinemas, we’ve entertained, had many many parties, we’ve been in trouble, we’ve had fun. But every year the mission has stayed the same: we’ve tried to give people experiences, interesting and immersive opportunities to come together, through design.
S Chair Wool
Born in Tom's 80's London workshop, the S Chair has been re-engineered using the latest developments in manufacturing technology for maximum comfort. This chair is upholstered in Wool and available in a variety of colours and sits proudly on its steering-wheel inspired cast iron base.
Melt LED Pendant
Melt is a beautifully distorted pendant light in a modern finish. Emitting an attractive, mildly hallucinogenic light, this Tom Dixon ceiling light creates a mesmerizing melting hot-blown glass effect when on and a mirror-finish effect when off. Made in Germany using a high tech manufacturing technique to achieve the perfect melted orb.
HYDRO is a limited-edition chair created in collaboration with HYDRO, the biggest aluminium producer in the world. The HYDRO chair is an innovation in aluminium technology. It has been blow-formed (through a process called Superplastic Forming) at high temperatures and then laser cut by robots. These methods were developed in the automotive industries to make deep and complex forms that were impossible to achieve a few years ago. The ballooned pattern gives strength and rigidity and lends a soft and humorous pop sensibility to the lightweight and shiny metal sheet.
Each chair is marked with a limited edition number and comes with a certificate signed by Tom Dixon.
Globe Burst Chandelier
Globe Burst is an extraordinary large chandelier featuring 12 Globe shades with a gloss black fitting. The shades are designed into a fixed configuration with a single point construction. Featuring our integrated LED module, the spherical orbs are highly mirrored and perfectly reflective during the day, and when switched on reveals a multiplicity of internal reflections.
