PART-1 THE S CHAIR
Born in Tunisia, Tom Dixon moved to England in 1963. He studied in Educated in London he dropped out of Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band Funkapolitan before teaching himself welding.
Tom rose to prominence in the mid 1980's as "the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture". By the end of the 80's, he was designing chairs for powerhouse Italian brands like Cappellini. Tom Dixon created his own company in the mid-nineties, called 'Eurolounge'. The S chair, designed by Tom Dixon for Cappellini Furniture in 1991, is rapidly becoming a modern furniture icon. The S-chair has a metal frame covered in woven marsh straw, wicker and a range of fabrics and leathers. The S chair now has a permanent place in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Dixon has since collaborated with Cappellini on many other projects, including the Bird Rocking chair, the Pylon table and chair and the tub chair to name just some. I chose to focus on the S chair because it was the most expressive piece of furniture i could find. I like how it is not restrained to the basic square structure, but it's free and flows.
