tom dixon together with upholster george smith launched his new wingback chair range, during the london design festival. for the show the pair transformed a knightsbridge ballroom into an upholstery factory where visitors had the chance to watch skilled craftsmen produce the furniture onsite. employing centuries old techniques the tom dixon wingback chair is handmade using sustainable wood, cotton and feather. also on display were the various stages of production of the wingback chairs. the chair is upholstered with mohair velvet and is available in 12 different colors.
tom dixon will also be having its first ever sample sale this friday and saturday. lighting and furniture will be on sale to the public at 5 cromwell place in london. an opportune moment for a london design festival souvenir perhaps?
