Salone Milan 2010 – Tom Dixon preview


British lighting and furniture company Tom Dixon launches a new collection entitled INDUSTRY at Super Studio Più as part of Milan Design Week 2010. What would normally be a static trade show booth will be transformed into a FLASH FACTORY where the process of industrial production will be brought directly to the customer.

A digitally manufactured brass lamp will be available either flat-packed to the size of an envelope or assembled on site by the Tom Dixon team.

The installation aims to demonstrate new found power of the designer, as a digital manufacturer, able to access world markets with fresh products in previously unimaginable time scales

Void, is a mysterious lighting object with a double wall spun construction available in solid copper , brass or stainless steel.


Other new pieces will include a wooden cafe chair called Peg and a bench made of the rough timber that industry normally discards, which is a continuation of the Offcut series

Offcut Bench, using the rough part of a log which is typically discarded in wood production to give each piece unique character, it is flat packed and can be assembled without any additional screws or glue.

Peg, a supremely adaptable, unusually efficient solid wood stackable café chair. The long awaited return of Jack, the polyethylene ‘sitting, stacking, lighting thing’ now back in its natural home with the motto: it’s back -it also comes in black and it stacks.
