Tom Dixon (1959-)

Tom Dixon was born in Sfax in Tunisia on the 21st of May 1959. Tom Dixon is one of the most original British designers of his generation; Tom Dixon is a trendsetter in the world of international design! This is the reason why we admire him so much at Diiiz.

In 2006, Tom Dixon was awarded the title ‘designer of the year ‘, he received this award for a second time in 2014 from the ‘Salon de Maison et Objets’ in Paris. Tom Dixon’s work is exposed in museums all around the world. This self-taught designer, really has a unique story in the world of design!

During the 80’s Tom Dixon was a guitarist, he worked as an animator in a nightclub and during the day he welded metal with a friend who was a mechanic. He began his career by creating pieces out of recycled metal. He started taking lessons at Chelsea College of Art and Design but he soon gave these up. Tom recuperated metal (pans and lorry breaks) from the docks in Chelsea to create ‘functional pieces’. Tom Dixon created the Creative Salvage group with Mark Brazier-Jones and Nick Jones and he became famous for inventing the S-Chair.

20 years later, this self-made man, is renowned across the globe for his designs! After being the artistic director for Habitat from 1998-2008, Tom Dixon launched his own company to create furniture and lighting.

Tom’s creations reflect his passion for raw materials, craftsmanship and industrial shapes and they embody the new industrial spirit of this generation. Strength, longevity, durability and functionality are all words that can be used to describe his designs.

Tom Dixon received an honorary degree from the University of Birmingham in 2004 and from the London University of the Arts in 2007. Some of his pieces are exposed in museums such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the MoMa in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
