Tom Dixon opens the Manzoni in Milan
Introducing the Manzoni, our joint Restaurant, Showroom and Shop, located in the heart of Italy’s commercial and cultural capital. The experimental space has been created by Tom's Design Research Studio in collaboration with JLK Design Studio. With each room having its own distinctive decor, character and narrative, visitors can experience multiple atmospheres throughout the space.
Tom Dixon says:
‘After years of doing 5-day exhibition in Milan, we finally decided that we had enough of putting such huge energy into pop-up interventions. We wanted to look at different ways of being present in Milan. With the city being so active and engaging right now, it is the right time to forget being temporary and build something permanent.'
'Just like in London, we don’t think it’s enough to just have a showroom. We need a place where people slow down and experience our products in a live setting. There is nothing dustier than a conventional lighting and furniture showroom. But with The Manzoni, people are able to experience our new collections in an active context.’
Bar and Lounge
Monolithic granite meets sicilian lava stone at the Bar & Lounge. The granite bar contrasts the mint green floor tiles, and Tom Dixon's FAT lounge chairs and bar stools are illuminated with OPAL and MELT lights.
The room opens up into a long hall featuring CORK dining table and FAT chairs, where guests are invited to dine in a communal setting. The monochromatic Italian interior is illuminated with OPAL lights.
Our dense jungle of gold and greenery in the gallery, with plants and vines flourishing from all corners. Huge pendants of brass SPRING lights hang over FAT bar stools, where diners are invited to enjoy a coffee in Tom Dixon's accessories. The courtyard features a custom-made forest green marble table, holding Tom Dixon's marble green ROCK sculptures.
