Overview

Tom Dixon is one of the world’s leading designers, and this book explores his very personal approach to product design. He began designing furniture twenty years ago after a motorcycle accident, relying on his welding skills to create a variety of ornamental and functional objects including the famous S-Bend chair which was then marketed by Cappellini, the Italian furniture maker. Among his most notable designs are the Mirrorball light and Soft System couch. The book collects images of objects and other sources that have inspired his work juxtaposed with his designs, offering a window into his interior world. The book also delves into such currently hot design topics as materials and processes, and it surveys design history as well as looking into the future of product design. The book’s exterior case was personally designed by Tom Dixon and features a number of custom printing effects that make it a must-have objet.
