Eclectic genius and creative spirit: Tom Dixon constantly reinvents himself. Born in 1959 with Tunisinian blood and London soul, he passed through various experiences before discovering his true attitude. He grew up and studied at the design school in London for few months, engaging in different activities, even joining some rock bands. After a bad accident, Tom Dixon learned to weld and repaired his motorcycle: from this moment he started to create furniture, using recycled materials. In 1985, the designer established the Creative Salvage group with other friends, but he debuted in the world of international design thanks to Ron Arad. A few years later he founded the Space studio in London and got success, producing the famous S-chair for Cappellini, permanently exhibited at MoMa in New York. Tom Dixon signed many iconic pieces such as: the Bird chaise longue and the Pylon chair. Jack and Star Light are incredible lamps, realized for Eurolounge. In 1998, he became Habitat’s creative director and in 2002 finally founded the Tom Dixon Ltd. 2003 marks the birth of the mythic Mirror Ball, while a continuously rising carrier earned him the Best Retail Design prize at Condé Nast Awards. In 2004, he works for Artek and nowadays is a creative director of 100% Tom Dixon Design, leading the Research Studio Design he has founded.
