Tom Dixon is a self-confessed untrained designer whose talent is such that he made a name for himself at the Italian furniture firm Cappellini, where he designed the iconic S chair. As his company’s biography states: “Tom then went on to create his own company, 'Eurolounge,' under which he made and sold the much celebrated Jack light. Dixon was appointed head of design by Habitat in 1998 and later became Creative Director until his departure in January 2008. Dixon was awarded the Order of the British Empire in 2001. He is the Creative Director of Tom Dixon.”

This company has wonderfully creative products inspired by Britain’s unique heritage with innovative designs for furniture, lighting, chairs, candles and candle holders, bar stools, dining tables, lamps and lamp shades and much more.
Establishing the company that bears his name in 2002, Tom Dixon the firm entered a period of very rapid growth, doubling in size year after year. In 2004 a Swedish-based private investment company, Proventus, underwrote Tom Dixon’s business plan and capitalized Design Research Studio, a design and product development holding company. As a result, Tom Dixon shows new design collections annually at the Milan international furniture fair. Today, Tom Dixon lighting, furniture and accessories are sold across 63 countries, and Arkitektura of San Francisco became a respected retail outlet where our sales staff is delighted to guide you towards a purchase from this stupendous revival of the British furniture industry.
