Salone del Mobile is back for 2014! Unaware of Salone? Well, pick up those ears and listen in. Salone del Mobile is our humble planet’s most premiere furniture, object and interior fair. Every designer that is cool, or wants to be, is at this fair and showcasing what’s new, exciting and boundary-pushing in the way of interior furnishings. Salone is always creatively stimulating and definitely worth checking out. We’ve been covering it for a couple of years now and this year‘s no different, we’ll be bringing your all our highlights from Milan over the next few days. The first, Tom Dixon and his sexy design aesthetic.
This year’s Salone marks Tom Dixon’s debut at the fair where his new collection of home furnishings under the theme of the CLUB is being presented. I first came across Dixon’s shiny objects when I spotted one of his hexagonally patterned, copper pressed bowls. The slickness found in that object is written all over the signature of the CLUB collection. Basing the range on the conventional British Gentleman’s club, Dixon has ramped it up a notch by reworking the aesthetic into a contemporary, pleasure-trove of plush goodies. Metallics dominant along with some beautifully smooth finishes, extraordinarily sleek lighting designs, and clean, modern tableware and service ware. This is a collection full of glamour, but done in a way that isn’t cheap or glitzy, or devoid of taste. Rather it makes you want to snap it all up and take it home. Surely it’s alright to have a little bit of bling in your life right? Tom says yes! and I’m sure glad he has!
Tom Dixon’s CLUB is showing in Hall 20, stand B06 at Salone del Mobile. Get in there if you’re visiting.
