Opened earlier this month to coincide with the city’s NYC x Design festival, the new Tom Dixon Soho / Manhattan outpost forms the “USA East Coast hub” for the brand, complimenting the existing store in Los Angeles.
The late 19th century showroom at 25 Greene Street, Soho, New York now showcases Tom Dixon’s rapidly expanding catalogue of lighting, furniture and home accessories in a generous 625 sqm twin floor retail store setting
The Minotti 2013 collection evokes a certain era – the ’50s, ’60s and ‘70s – by drawing upon a veritable fountain of design ideas and personalities that left an indelible mark on the history of Italian and international design.
Echoes of contemporary American architecture, the light freshness of Scandinavian design, the strict formality of German rationalism, the calm and measured elegance of the Milanese school, and the ability to create cultured, sophisticated decor – all flow together in a perfect and at the same time original fusion of inspirations from the worlds of design, architecture and decor.
Muse represents the second collaboration between Calico Wallpaper and Faye Toogood, both recognized for fusing the worlds of art and design.
Muse explores the endless diversity and variety of womankind, forming a painterly tableau of faces with a rich array of features, poses and expressions.
