We normally feature ‘vintage’ designers in this series. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t also appreciate contemporary design. One of our favourite designers currently producing is Tom Dixon.
He has worked with and for big names such as Habitat and Cappellini. But it is his own name designs for which he is now best known. I love, love, love all his metallic designs; from his lighting to desk accessories and coffee sets.
He has, in recent years, branched out into architecture including the re-design of Sea Containers House on the Southbank and one of Jamie Oliver’s restaurants.
