Who is Tom Dixon?
Born in Tunisia in 1959 Tom Dixon’s fascination with design and manufacturing started early in life when he began taking life drawing classes and studied pottery at school. Prior to entering the world of design, Tom Dixon spent two years as a professional bass guitar player in a disco band during the early 1980’s as well as working in the night club business.
It was in 1983 that Tom Dixon discovered the art of welding and with it the freedom to create his own furniture. Over the coming years Tom Dixon evolved from a welder to a designer. Recognition quickly followed in 1986 with the creation of the famous S-Chair which is now part of the permanent collection in the New York City Museum of Modern Art. Dixon’s obsession with design further evolved in 1988 when he created his first light. This paved the way for the famous Tom Dixon lighting range we know today.
Further modern classics were created during the 1990’s which resulted in Tom Dixon being awarded the Order of the British Empire in 2000. Having previously worked for other brands, in 2002 the Tom Dixon brand was officially founded, leading to countless furniture and lighting creations in the years that followed. Since then the Tom Dixon brand has also been designing interiors for restaurants, hotels and other venues, providing the perfect opportunity to showcase new products and exploring their functionality and aesthetics.
The Tom Dixon lighting and furniture range explores a variety of shapes, materials and textures.

In addition to his work with his own brand, Dixon has collaborated with a number of other companies and brands, including IKEA, Adidas, and Selfridges.
