Tom Dixon: Lighting the Way
While Tom Dixon is a household name in British design, and even a living, breathing symbol of the country’s aesthetic today, there is no denying that he has forever been a true original.Born in Tunisia, and raised in Morocco and Egypt before moving to England, Dixon’s exotic early influences ignited a quest for a new way of seeing and, in due course, of making. This drive has taken him around the world in search of inspiration, channeling creative awakenings into luxurious light fixtures and free spirited furniture. Tom filled us in on the highs and lows of the convergence of Covid and Brexit, which led not only to supply chain disruptions, but also to an intense period of creation in a green house owned by the oldest orchid business in the world, which revived the kind of play intrinsic to his early career. We discussed the beauty to be found in the first of something, being motivated by surprises, and why you should go to as many parties as possible. Please enjoy this conversation with the unparalleled Tom Dixon, presented by NUVO Magazine. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Episode 158: Tom Dixon
House Guest by Country & Town House | Interior Designer Interviews
Welcome to episode 158 of the House Guest podcast, where Country & Town House Magazine's Interiors Editor Carole Annett chats with experts from the world of interior design and decoration. My House Guest this week is Tom Dixon, known as a restless innovator who rose to prominence in the mid-1980s as a maverick, untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture. While working with the Italian giant Cappellini he designed the widely acclaimed ‘S’ Chair and Creative Director at Habitat rejuvenating the brand while maintaining Terence Conran’s vision of enriching everyday life through simple, modern design. In 2007, he launched Design Research Studio, a design and innovations agency at the heart of Tom Dixon, now based at Coal Office in London’s King’s Cross, which operates as an office, shop, workshop and restaurant all under one roof. We chat about his love of making things, which includes food, hence his collaboration with chef Assaf Granit - Coal Office is their food and design playground, rich in material, style and flavour. He also has a wry take on his early designs: ‘After 20 years in the business, I still feel young and there’s a lot to do, it’s both fabulous and depressing that my stuff is now being sold in antique shops and occasionally a car boot sale'. Tune in for more.
