Tom Dixon debuts at the Fair for Milan Design and style Week, showcasing new furnishings, lighting and accessories underneath the theme of ‘CLUB’. The designer took inspiration from historic British members club and created his modern model, a present day day home-away-from-home, a plush and cultured haven exactly where pleasure and perform collide. Club attributes a palette of metallic colors, extraordinary lighting and tactile finishes with new functions ranging from cocktail shakers to job lighting.
Tom says : ‘A misspent youth spent in the London warehouse club scene, and a more latest series of experimental interiors created for the new breed of private clubs are the causes why we have selected to reinvigorate the fabled British Members Club into a futuristic social atmosphere.’
The Bell pendant (over) continues Tom’s exploration into the ultra-reflective, a luminous object with a polished mirror surface that requires on the colors and qualities of its surroundings. Formed from pressed chrome plated steel, the dome is completed with an injection moulded diffuser offering a soft warm light.
