Milan 2014: Designer Tom Dixon will present a range of furniture and metallic lighting that references British members' clubs in Milan next month.
Tom Dixon describes his Club series as a modern take on old gentlemen's clubs found in the UK. "A misspent youth spent in the London warehouse club scene and a series of experimental private club interiors are the reasons why we have chosen to reinvigorate the fabled British members' club into a futuristic social environment," said the designer.
The series features a wide pendant light called Flood, which has been created using injection-moulded polymers commonly used in the automotive industry. The designer's well-known metallic Beat pendant lights have been recoloured in a matte grey with an internal silver plate.
Other additions to the Beat collection include table and floor lights with shades based on water vessels used in India.
The new Pivot collection consists of three rotating pieces of furniture, including a high-backed chair, a curved low-backed chair and a bar stool. These are constructed using an internal metal frame and covered with foam upholstery. Each piece sits on a die-cast aluminium base.
The Y table has a plain black plastic top and comes in two sizes. A coloured enamel insert can be added.
Tom Dixon's Club series will be on show at this year's Salone Internazionale del Mobile trade fair in Milan from 8 to 13 April.
