THE GENTLE MAN

Tom Dixon's CLUB - Milan 2014

31st Mar 2014

This year marks Tom Dixon's debut at Milan Design Week, where they will showcase new furniture, lighting and accessories under the theme of the CLUB.

The conventional Gentleman’s club is reworked into a contemporary version of the historic British members club – a modern day home-away-from-home, a plush and cultured haven where pleasure and work collide. CLUB features a palette of metallic colours, extraordinary lighting and tactile finishes with new functions ranging from cocktail shakers to task lighting. 

Tom says: "A misspent youth spent in the London warehouse club scene, and a more recent series of experimental interiors designed for the new breed of private clubs are the reasons why we have chosen to reinvigorate the fabled British Members Club into a futuristic social environment."

The collection includes GREY BEAT - an exercise in expressive minimalism whereby the instantly recognisable pendants are now recolored in grey with a precious internal silver plate, creating a warm, shimmering glow. An ode to optical engineering, FLOOD boasts a strong profile and takes inspiration from the automotive industry's technical mastery. Made from injection–moulded polymers, the result is a robust and highly reflective object. Some overdue additions to the popular BEAT family are inspired by the sculptural simplicity of traditional water vessels used in India. Both table and floor lights incorporate the familiar hand-beaten shade.
A series of drawn and sharply upholstered silhouettes, the PIVOT collection consists of a high-back chair, a low-back chair and a bar stool - all made with internal metal frame, moulded foam upholstery and rotating die-cast aluminium base. A tactile table top made from durable polyurethane, the Y TABLE comes in two sizes and two different finishes – a plain black top and with an enamel insert. The enamel adds a vibrant pop of colour. Y Table is waterproof and works well on any of Dixon's table bases.
