Born in Tunisia, Tom Dixon moved to England in 1963. He dropped out of the Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band “Funkapolitan” before teaching himself first to weld, then to produce furniture. Tom rose to prominence in the mid-1980\'s as “the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture\". In the 1990s, Dixon was a household name in the design field. Since setting up his own design company in 2002, Tom’s work has become even more prominent. The Tom Dixon brand gave Tom a platform to produce iconic designs.
