Tom Dixon (born 1959) is a British designer specialising in furniture. He was born in Sfax, Tunisia and moved to the United Kingdom at the age of four. Without formal training, he began designing furniture in his early 20s when after being injured in a motorcycle accident he used his welding skills learned while repairing his motorcycle to create a variety of objects including the S-Bend chair, discovered later by Italian furniture maker Cappellini. Among his most notable creations are the Mirrorball light (2005) and the Wingback Chair. He is also known for giving away hundreds of lights to the British public from Trafalgar Square in 2007. Items of his work form part of the collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Design Museum in London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Moma in New York, the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Vitra Museum, Basle, Switzerland. He also engages in many design-focused speaking events and charity events around the globe and has taught at the Royal College of Art, Kingston Polytechnic and Plymouth University. He was appointed head of design for Habitat in 1998.
