out and about :: tom dixon in the dock

Tom Dixon has a shop; in London; selling “spectacular everyday things”… so naturally I went along to take a look…

It’s set within “The Dock“; a design hub housing…… pop-up shops, on-site manufacturing, exhibitions and installations. It features Tom Dixon’s entire collection alongside other design products he’s hand-picked.

And excitingly, during the London Design Festival it also features “factory workers” hand assembling his latest collection “Etch” – a digitally manufactured pendant light and candle holder.
