We've already lusted after his swanky stationery, but we now have our eye on something bigger. Brit Tom Dixon has launched his first workplace collection this month, egging us to forward this page along to our office administration for some serious logistics appraisal. Known for his industrial approach to sleek, bold design, Dixon has introduced three key pieces in this collection: A work desk, a table lamp and a new material in stationery.
What sparked this new direction? Dixon shares that as the line between work and home gets more blurred, so does the need for multi-functional furniture. "There is a need for versatile, hardwearing and functional objects for work that are attractive enough to be used in domestic and decorative situations," he surmises.
Slab is one such solution. Inspired by Victorian school desks, the Slab desk is a multi-functional piece that suits any flexible office space — be it a stuffy corporate setting or a makeup artist's studio. Made of solid oak, the desk's rounded edges give it a stylish nod while grooves on its top separate your smaller essentials: Pens, notepads or USB cables. For better visuals, the Boom table light borrows the aesthetics of a draughtsman or machinist's lamp with its cylindrical and tubular structure.
Dixon has also updated his stationery line with a new material, alloy. You can also update your furnishing's base and top with his range of 90 combinations of materials, such a fumed wood and green marble. See more interior ideas below.
