Tom Dixon is back to celebrate the London Design Festival, the biggest campaign on their home turf and will investigate the theme of Materiality and showcase new launches in furniture and lighting. Visit the showcase at the Coal Office, London HQ, to immerse yourself in his universe. The entire building, including their new flagship store which re-opened on the 18th of September, 2021 has transformed into different architectural spaces which investigate the innovative materials at the heart of Tom Dixon . Explore the series of extraordinary installations and innovative gallery exhibits below, each defined by the materiality in their latest collections. Prepare yourself for a multi-sensory retail experience.

On display:

Mass Four-Poster Bed

Introducing the new Mass collection of super-polished solid brass tables, coats and bookstands. The Mass collection is constructed from brass extrusion planks, which allows it to be interpreted in multiple configurations. Created exclusively for LDF, they have a limited-edition, Mass four-Poster bed on display in the gallery. Adorning the Mass bed is Kvadrat’s new Sisu fabric, which complements the warm brass tones of Mass.


Step inside the immersive Cork room, showcasing the raw and natural beauty of cork. sheets clad the walls and the chubby-edged cork furniture is on display, representing the wonder material's versatility. By repurposing cork for their furniture, they have taken full advantage of its elasticity, sound absorption and waterproof nature.

The Jungle

Based in the Perfumery Arch of the Shop, they take you on an eccentric sensorial journey through Dixon's extraordinary objects. Smell the powerful and woody notes of the Underground Elements scent, infused through the space. See their highly reflective Mirror Ball and the naturally crafted cork furniture. Listen to the soothing sounds of the rainforest.


Acknowledging Dixon's love of stacking, the Puck display features a sculptural totem highlighting the craftsmanship and shapes of the drinkware range. Burst, their highly-reflective and epically proportioned chandelier, complements the display.

The Museum

For the first time ever, you can get a peek inside Tom's private collection. Investigate his sculptural busts acquired during his travel over the years. Paying homage to the archival pieces which are normally on display in international museum collections, a dedicated area spotlights limited edition and unseen objects.


View the newly launched Press lights on exhibit for the first time in the store's historic arches. Made of fat, chunky coils of ribbed and transparent glass, Press projects striped patterns onto the vibrant yellow backdrop, supplied by paper artisans G.F Smith.
