The low-back version of Tom Dixon's molded chair is ergonomically designed to hug and support the body just like the bucket seat of a race car. Originally developed for the Royal Academy of Art Restaurant in London, the Scoop series is generously proportioned for long-lasting comfort. Its supportive silhouette is engineered from a new molded foam and fully upholstered in a variety of available textiles or rich leather. The chair legs also get the custom treatment with the choice of oak finishes or metallic brass, copper or chrome.

“If there are rules to design, I don’t know what they are,” says self-taught British designer Tom Dixon. “I just have ideas and I want to see what happens if I put them out there.” Tom’s errant first stab at creativity was playing bass in a 1980s disco group. Then a stint honing his welding skills in a auto body repair shop eventually led to his design breakthrough for Cappellini with the iconic S Chair. With products in more than 60 countries today, his contemporary lighting, furniture, tabletop and barware ranges and accessories have been “put out there” to wide acclaim.
Based in Portobello, London, the Tom Dixon brand launches new collections of lighting and furniture biannually in Milan and London. “What’s interesting about the modern world [is that] you don’t need to attract large amounts of people globally to be a successful designer,” Tom says. “You can be quite focused and do specific work and people will come to you if they’re attracted to it.”
