Tom Dixon is a British designer born in Tunisia. He moved to England in 1963. Educated in London he dropped out of Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band Funkapolitan before teaching himself welding. Tom rose to prominence in the mid 1980's as "the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture". He set up ‘Space’ as a creative think-tank and shop front for himself and other young designers. By the late 1980's, he was working for the Italian giant Cappellini for whom he designed the Iconic ‘S’ chair. In 2002, he established the manufacturing company of lighting and furniture “Tom Dixon”. The brand commits to innovation and sets itself a mission to revive the British furniture industry. Today the Tom Dixon portfolio consists of over 45 products of lighting and furniture sold through a large network of dealers in over 52 countries worldwide.
Lindholdt Studio was created by two brothers whose motto is "there is room for everything except compromise". The idea is to push the limits of global Nordic design.
