On the occasion of milan design week 2014, british designer tom dixon is presenting a new line of furniture, lighting and accessories under the theme of ‘club’. the historic british members club is reimagined as a contemporary version of the gentleman’s hangout — a modern day home-away-from-home, a plush, exquisite haven where work and play collide. from cocktail shakers to cozy seaters,’club’ comprises a palette of brilliant metallic colors — with silver lined lamps, golden plated pendants, and tactile finishes with new functions. describing the collection’s traditional source of influence, dixon says ‘a misspent youth spent in the london warehouse club scene, and a more recent series of experimental interiors designed for the new breed of private clubs are the reasons why we have chosen to reinvigorate the fabled british members club into a futuristic social environment.’
A series of drawn and sharply upholstered silhouettes, ‘the pivot collection‘ consists of a high-back chair, a low-back chair and a bar stool – all made with internal metal frame, molded foam upholstery and rotating die-cast aluminum base.
