Keeping it fresh: British furniture designer Tom Dixon gets sporty
British designer Tom Dixon has made his name designing furniture and lighting over the past three decades, but he is not resting up just yet.
The self-taught Dixon has ventured into new areas, such as interior designer - and now, fashion wear. At a recent interview in Singapore to launch his latest accessories collection, Eclectic, Dixon shares that he is launching a range of luggage and clothes with sports giant adidas.
The 53-year-old says that the process is "terrifying", given that it is a new realm for the designer of the iconic S-Chair (1991) and Wingback Chair (2007).
On why the urge to keep pushing himself beyond his hallmark furniture design, he says: "I get bored easily and I wish furniture seasons would change a bit faster, like fashion. But having so many things to design for, I'm always experimenting new products."
