Y Chair: Swivel Base
Adding a swivel base gives Y Chair a multifunctional versatility, whether it's placed at an office desk or the dining table. Tom Dixon's seemingly quirky seating is actually as ergonomic as it is eye-catching. With the split-design backrest, both shoulder blades get optimal support while the chair's proportions also promise lumbar support and generous space for the spine. The flexible quality of the injection-molded seat in fiberglass-reinforced nylon, a 100% recyclable material, is shock-absorbing and comfortable for hours.
37" h x 19.75" w x 20.75" d (94x50x52.6cm)
Seat height: 17" (43.5cm)
Glass-reinforced nylon, cast aluminum

“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.”
