Tom Dixon Designer
Founder and eponymous creative director Tom Dixon is an innovator who rose to prominence in the 1980s and 90s as a maverick, untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture. It was during this period that he began collaborating with Italian giant Cappellini, for which he designed the widely acclaimed ‘S’ Chair.
In the late 1990s, Dixon became creative director at Habitat. He rejuvenated the brand while maintaining Terence Conran’s vision of enriching everyday life through simple, modern design. Today, Dixon is one of the industry’s most feted British designers heralded as a significantly original talent.
