Next in our Architecture Series – From Lego to Skyscrapers, Vince speaks to the prolific British designer, Tom Dixon – internationally heralded for his extraordinary furniture, lighting, accessories and interiors.

Designing his life has been one of constant creative reinvention playing punk music and running nightclubs, welding steel into radical furniture, working with luxury Italian goods with Cappellini, Creative Director at Habitat and Artek, and finally instigating his iconic eponymous brand.

Listen in as they explore what it means to be a commercial designer, how a motorbike accident drove him towards design, and why after so much world-renowned success, Tom still considers himself an up-and-coming designer.
