Tom Dixon Opens The Manzoni in Milan
We’re thrilled to present the first pieces of a fuller hardware collection by Tom Dixon at the opening of The Manzoni during Milan Design week.
Tom Dixon returns to Milan after a year’s absence and rethinks how a design brand can embed itself into the heart of Italy’s commercial and cultural capital. Aptly named The Manzoni, the new 100-cover restaurant has been created by Tom’s Design Research Studio. Pre-Opening at the beginning of April to coincide with Milan Design Week, it will re-open just after Salone as a permanent restaurant and a showroom.
Tom says: “After years of doing 5-day exhibition in Milan, we finally decided that we had enough of putting such huge energy into pop-up interventions. We wanted to look at different ways of being present in Milan. With the city being so active and engaging right now, it is the right time to forget being temporary and build something permanent. Just like in London, we don’t think it’s enough to just have a showroom. We need a place where people slow down and experience our products in a live setting. There is nothing dustier than a conventional lighting and furniture showroom. But with The Manzoni, people are able to experience our new collections in an active context.”
New collections showing at The Manzoni in April include FAT, OPAL and SPRING and a special collaboration with d line on a soon-to-be-launched hardware collection. Get a sneak-peak of the first pieces at The Manzoni.
