Last month Tom Dixon made a quick stop in Hong Kong to introduce a new line of limited edition wares dubbed as his “Factory” line pieces made right in the Tom Dixon Hong Kong Monobrand showroom
The first product rolled out of the “Tom Dixon Factory” were Limited Edition Etch laser cut stainless steel sheets that are semi-easy to fold and lock together to create an iconic pendant light.
Blending the back of house product making and design with the front of house retail experience, invited architects, interior designers, stylist and media were invited to participate in the production of their own product at this makeshift Factory in the Hollywood Street Tom Dixon Showroom
They could all make their own ” limited edition “etch shade and take it home with them afterwards
The first in a series of workshops, you’ll be joining the Tom Dixon creators at The Factory to produce your very own limited-edition pendant ETCH light.
In this unique event, guests get hands-on and join the production line, helping to create a limited batch of only 600 pendant lights produced solely at The Factory and assembled by you.
The workshop “limited edition ” Etch shade will cost you approx $ 400 unassembled, a significant reduction of the cost of a usual Etch pendant, since you are supplying the hard labour input to turn it into the finished desirable object !
You get a certificate of authenticity when you make your own Tom Dixon etched shade in the Factory.
According to Tom and his ” Factory ” Product Design Supervisor Tomos Owen, once these limited edition pieces have been distributed – the brand will move on to Production line Series 2 – ” Ceramics ”
We can’t wait to see the fruits of that project
