Designer of the Year 2021: Tom Dixon
Elle Decor British Design Awards 2021
Tom Dixon has been awarded the 2021 Elle Decoration British Design Award. The British Design Award is awarded to designers and brands who have "strived to make our spaces happier, healthier and mores sustainable" during the past year.
With a career that spans over 30 years and a large catalogue of products, Tom has also designed the interiors of hotels, experimental spaces and restaurants, including the Coal Office Restaurant at his own King's Cross HQ.
Throughout 2020, Tom designed new product and interior collections, pushing the boundaries with materials and manufacturing. CORK is a carbon-negative collection of furniture, and SWIRL is a range of accessories formed from surplus marble dust. He also created MASS, a series of highly polished brass furniture, made from a single extrusion.
"It's been a punishing, complex and chaotic year and we have had to adapt, deconstruct and reshape ourselves to continually survive." - Tom Dixon
