Tom Dixon, OBE is a British industrial designer whose works are in many major museums and collections. Tom's an interesting fellow because he's rather different than the rigorously trained designer. When you look at his production you might see a focus on utility and fun- something that is sadly missing from much of the modernist and post-modernist movement. Then again, he did design the S chair (go ahead, say 'iconic')- but you can put that right next to the really cool roto-molded Jack lights for Eurolounge (think massive children's game jacks in bright colors that light from the inside). A reserved man, Tom continues to add his ideas to the planet, recently moving into soft pillows and personal accessories.
