The newest creation from the Tom Dixon design studio is the Cut Light, a highly polished light with a mirrored opaque finish when switched off, comes alive once switched on to create a Kaleidoscopic reflection upon the surrounding walls. Inspired by an ever growing fascination with futuristic optics, this impressive light joins the design studio’s vast lighting family as the tenth member and is available in a pendant or surface light.
Tom Dixon will be opening the doors of its Multiplex exhibition, to showcase this years designs, old and new, in an 840 seat Cinema in Milan. The multi functioning exhibition will feature food and refreshment stands as well as guest exhibitors such as Sonos, Mabeo and IKEA.
“Milan in April turns into the Glastonbury of design – a huge explosion of ideas, colours, shapes and functions, a massive influx of design obsessives all seeking the latest ideas,” said Dixon. “The reality is people are there for fun. We feel we might as well acknowledge what’s really going on here and try to entertain people.”
