Dixonary: Illuminations, revelations and post-rationalizations from a chaotic mind
1 em estoque
Dixonary is the first comprehensive book on one of Britain’s best known and most highly regarded product designers, in his own words and with a wealth of illustrations showing the inspiration behind each work he has produced in almost 30 years of design. Self-taught and a child of the punk era, Dixon (born 1959) founded his own studio in 1991 and became Head of Design at Habitat in 1998 before reestablishing his own brand, Tom Dixon – a lighting and furniture design and manufacturing company – in 2002. He has also been Creative Director at Artek, the Finnish furniture company founded by Alvar and Aino Aalto. Dixon’s artistic career began when he discovered the pleasures of welding while repairing damaged motorcycle frames; he went on to specialize in welded salvage furniture and became known as a designer when his S-Chair was manufactured by Guido Cappellini in 1991. Dixon’s previous books include Rethink (2002), an analysis of each room in the modern home, and The Interior World of Tom Dixon (2008), a book of ideas and observations on design, materials and style. Dixonary is the first complete monograph of this British innovator.
