London Lit Festival 13: Dixonary: Tom Dixon
Tom Dixon is one of Britain's best known and highly regarded product designers.
A self-taught child of the punk era, his design career began when he discovered the pleasure of welding while repairing damaged motorcycle frames.
First famous for the S-chair he made for Guido Cappellini, Dixon became Head of Design at Habitat in 1998. He was creative director of Artek, the Finnish design studio established by Alvar and Aino Aalto, and established his own company in 2002.
In this illustrated talk, Tom launches his new book, 'Dixonary', in which he talks about the inspiration behind a 30-year career in design.
Tom Dixon earned his name as a design maverick in the early 80's with a D.I.Y. punk approach to furniture making. Deftly combining the creative with the commercial, Dixon went on to set up his own studio, become Creative Director of Habitat and now Artek, the Finnish furniture manufacturer.
