Tom Dixon opens the Manzoni in Milan
The Manzoni Restaurant byTom Dixon coming to Milan
We're returning to Milan after a year’s absence and rethinking how we can embed ourselves into the heart of Italy’s commercial and cultural capital. Aptly named The Manzoni, the new 100-cover restaurant has been created by Tom’s Design Research Studio. Pre-Opening at the beginning of April to coincide with Milan Design Week, it will re-open after Salone as a permanent restaurant and a showroom.
The Manzoni will be our first mainland European home.
‘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.’

Fat Dining Chair Cassia 09
Fat, our new upholstery chair range is designed to hug the body and allows for multiple sitting positions. Available as a dining chair, bar stool and lounge chair, the extreme simplicity of the components is a testament to form following function, whilst maintaining a humorous silhouette and a reductionist aesthetic. Quite a balancing act!
Fat is made from moulded foam with a metal leg launching in high gloss black lacquer and made to order upholstery. Manufactured in Europe, hand finished and upholstered by experienced craftsmen.
Opal Pendant Light 25cm
Working with our German engineering partners, we have designed our own recipe of opalescent polycarbonate, resulting in a satisfyingly ethereal orb. We decided to remove the usual dangling lightbulb and replace it with our latest LED disc, making an extremely powerful illuminating device.
Spring Pendant Brass Medium
Spring is a series of three pendant lamps made up of stainless-steel strips. Pliant ribbons of stainless steel have been arranged like a whisk around our custom-made Tom Dixon LED. The semi-transparent shape thus created can be adjusted to a variety of silhouettes - from a flat arrangement reminiscent of a spirograph drawing, to a flying saucer configuration and on to a fuller shape akin to a pumpkin.
