The Tom Dixon Story
While playing bass in a disco band in the '70s never got him lasting recognition, Tunisian-born Tom Dixon's love of metal soon pushed him into his current profession and garnered him international renown as modern furniture and lighting designer. He taught himself to weld at age 24, his initial self-produced welded furniture leading to his breakthrough S-Chair design for Cappellini in 1985. Now an international brand, Tom Dixon (est. 2002) is a British design and manufacturing company of lighting and furniture, with products reaching 60 countries and new collections announced every year.
