Design past, present and future
We hosted Richard Biedul from British GQ who spoke to Tom Dixon. Exploring Tom history and discussing how Tom turned his hand to furniture, lighting and other interior accessories. They go into what design principles he adheres to and what he thinks the future holds for the field.
Jack Floor Light Natural
Jack is the original sitting, stacking, lighting thing, an award-winning multifunctional object that was one of Tom's first experiments with plastic. This iconic design object is made by a process of air rotational moulding which gives an even wall thickness.
Born in Tom’s 80s London workshop our S Chair is the prequel to its sibling still produced in Italy by legendary furniture company Cappellini.
Re-engineered to take account of the latest developments in manufacturing technology, the original three-dimensional form is now moulded in an industrial hard/soft foam with a pure new wool cover; the instantly recognisable serpentine curves are now more comfortable and ergonomically active than ever.
It now sits proudly on its steering-wheel inspired cast iron base.
Existing in a multitude of historic versions in the permanent collections of Museums from the MOMA New York to the V&A London the exciting adventures of ‘S’ look set to continue into the distant future.
The S Chair is available in a wide range of colours, in fabric or leather. Please contact our customer services team for more information.
