Tom Dixon: Talking with Designer of the Year
by Loredana Mascheroni
“I think they were short of names”. British humour, false modesty or reticence? Tom Dixon offered an ambivalent reply to my question as to the possible reasons for which the Design Museum in London decided to award him the title of Designer of the Year. What is without a doubt though is the award has been given to a self taught designer who began the trade “by chance” in 1983 when he was convalescing after an accident. Who was launched by Cappellini in 1989 with the S-Chair, a design icon.
Who founded Eurolounge in 1994 to produce his own plastic designs and took on the controversial role of head designer at Habitat in 1998. Who finally became a company in 2002 with Tom Dixon Ltd and since 2004 has been creative director of Artek, the Finnish brand created by Alvar Aalto in 1935.
We talk more about this and other things at Malpensa, comfortably seated on the longest sofa ever (certified for the Guinness book of records by a priest with a bluetooth earpiece, between a take off announcement and a last call for the late boarders) that Dixon designed for Bombay Sapphire.
