Earlier this year Tom set about creating a contemporary vision of the historic British members club with photographer Peer Lindgreen and interior design division, Design Research Studio.

The historic British Members ” CLUB ” is re-imagined as a contemporary version of the gentleman’s hangout — a modern day home-away-from-home, a plush, and cultured haven where work and play collide.


Describing the collection’s traditional source of influence, Dixon says …. ” a misspent youth spent in the London warehouse club scene, and a more recent series of experimental interiors designed for the new breed of private clubs are the reasons why we have chosen to reinvigorate the fabled British members club into a futuristic social environment.
