Early Life

Light Design Fitzroy | Carlton
Tom Dixon discovered his creative flair as a young man at Holland Park Comprehensive with their pottery and life drawing classes. His talents for creativity and business were nurtured during his two years as a professional musician during the 1980’s, and he was introduced to welding techniques during his time at a car body repair shop.

The year 2000 saw Dixon receive a medal for services to design at Buckingham Palace – an O.B.E.

In 2002 the Tom Dixon brand begins.

Based in London, in partnership with David Begg, the company begins with a line of extruded plastic products. The company has grown exponentially in the following years, with an established global reach and product lines ranging from interior design, lighting, designer lamps, apparel, gifts, and accessories.

Innovative Lighting Design

The range of lighting designs created by Tom Dixon is intended to inspire, invigorate, and transform the home from the everyday to the chic. With his focus on functionality as well as fashion, these items are practical as well as artistic.

Tom Dixon gets his inspiration from a variety of sources. His 2006 line of pendant lamps were designed with the sculptural simplicity of Northern India’s brass cooking pots and water vessels in mind, while his Etch Shade lights were inspired by the logic of pure mathematics. Other models have drawn on elements from the Audi A8, with the Etch Light Wed created to represent all the important design elements of the vehicle.

These designs are a beautiful addition to your home, bringing a touch of style and modern contemporary art to your spaces.
