Tom Dixon ups the ante on Flash, with his side table recast in Primavera marble with a polished chrome base. The enchanted stone is quarried from China’s majestic Yunnan area and features a bold look with waves of bright green inlaid with white and accented by black veining. Each tabletop has a unique pattern and the square surface can span the arm of a low sofa or nest in a coffee table arrangement with the rectangular and circular versions in the Flash series.

“If there are rules to design, I don’t know what they are,” declares self-taught Tom Dixon. This Tunisian-born Brit started out with stints painting cartoons, as a printer, then bass player in a disco-funk outfit. But it was honing his welding skills in an auto body repair shop that led to a design breakthrough, the now revered S Chair for Cappellini. From there, after several years helming design at the iconic Habitat during its prime years, he established his eponymous brand in 2002 and with it a body of near-unrivaled work.
Tom Dixon is synonymous with the idiosyncratic sensibilities that inform so much of British aesthetics, yet by a beat all his own. He challenges with his use of materials in unexpected applications, and reworkings of otherwise conventional classics into elegant gems. His remarkable creative output covers a wide swath of categories, among them at A+R, his lighting, furniture, décor, tabletop and barware. Tom also manages to extend his exhaustive vision to hotels, restaurants—including his own at this wonderful campus at the Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross—and the odd home. For good reason this OBE’s design work now resides in the collections of the V&A, MoMA and the Pompidou.
