The Interior World of Tom Dixon
November 27, 2008
The Interior World of Tom Dixon, published by Conran Octopus, was launched during the London Design Festival in September 2008. The book is an insight into the workings of Tom Dixon's mind, illustrating how he puts all of today's chaotic visual and functional explosions into some sort of order as a means of inspiration. It describes a personal approach and how through 20 years of experience, he has defined his own rules for categorising and describing different aspects of design.
The massive volume is divided into six chapters; Materialism, Constructivism, Futurism, Reductionism, Expressionism and Fundementalism.
Tom Dixon comments "... I hope I can share some of the excitement that I have the luxury of observing in these exhilarating, terrifying and explosively visual times. We all have instant access to bewildering quantities of images, but is is through processing and making links between different fields that I am able to think of something new. In this sense, this book is more of a scrapbook, the influences inside me.".
