One of the fist designers to introduce copper in modern interiors and in a very flamboyant way was Tom Dixon. His interiors are known to have copper as the main finishing element and I think he has done an amazing job so far. This project is his first ever in Paris , a new restaurant from Fabienne and Philippe Amzalak and Jean-Louis Costes, called Eclectic.
The main features are the pendant light in the center and custom made honey comb copper wall. The seating is mostly ‘lounging’ with large booths and armchairs that are part of the designer’s collection.Read More
Milan 2012 will witness the launch of ‘Luminosity’, a showcase of new lamps, lights and shades presented in a series of illuminated environments, at MOST, a festival of design, innovation and culture to be held at the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.
Luminosity is an exploration of light. On a mission to illuminate and furnish the future, we aim to de-mystify preconceptions of artificial light and to educate people on the future of lighting. New Products introduced by Tom Dixon include:
Etch Web is a vast 65cm wide shade with an unusual open structure, designed to cast atmospheric angular shadows when lit. An irregular pentagon shape is repeated 60 times across the body to create a total sphere. The enormous globe is astonishingly lightweight, weighing only 980 grams, with a correspondingly ethereal visual attitude. Formed from copper anodized aluminum through a process of digital photo-acid etching, an oversized LED bulb is suspended within the center of Etch Web to make it the ultimate shadow play pendant.Read More

This year;s theme is ‘Sharing’
The Observatoire de MAISON&OBJET has clicked on the “share” icon and is reflecting the latest influences in design and decoration. With the running theme “Sharing”, it explores the dynamics of “creative sharing” and foresees a benevolent future. Immerse yourself in the new Inspirations Trend Book and discover its perspectives in Hall 7, in the spaces designed by Vincent Grégoire for Nelly Rodi, François Bernard and Elizabeth Leriche.
Our era is clicking on the “Share” icon. Generation G for Generosity is bashing cynicism and liking “We”. New uses and values are reconfiguring ways of living together, exchanging information, goods, services and experiences. In the digital age, networking information is producing new tools with emerging practices in an economy of collaboration and cooperation. We are seeing a dynamic of creative sharing which is programming the future of a caring world.
Designer of the year is Tom Dixon
Tom Dixon, MAISON & OBJET’s 2014 Designer of the year, blows a whiff of London air into Paris. He creates an ephemeral workshop in partnership with the high echnology company Trumpf. This “instantaneous factory”
produces, in real time, a collection of diffusers and candles with a London fragrance. The packaging, products and boutique are like the event: unique.
Friday, September 5th from 11 am to 11.45 am
The conference space, Hall 7
The talented, hard-to-categorize Tom Dixon is always where you least expect him: an art director, interior designer, entrepreneur, designer, fashion designer, author… His collections are distributed throughout the design world; his spaces are glamorous and authentic. His is the success story of a self-made designer.
