The Club: Tom Dixon at London Design Festival 2014

British designer Tom Dixon has blended the refined elegance of the traditional members’ club with his “misspent youth” in discotheques, styling his destination store at West London’s Portobello Dock with warm metals, textured black surfaces, inviting armchairs and geometric chandeliers.

The stars of the show are copper and brass: used for monumental lighting pieces and decorative accessories, the metals cast a warm glow over their darker surrounds and give the space a luxurious industrial feel.

Glass and copper carafes, unisex fragrances, silvered orb lighting and brass reading tools and barware also stand out as product highlights, alongside the angular, brass-plated Plane chandelier, which is being launched at the show.

The route to The Dock’s store is decorated with cabinets of curiosity, filled with geological samples, vintage jewellery boxes and framed butterflies.

Homebuildlife subscribers can find out more about about how the aesthetics of both industrial design and the members’ club are evolving in our lifestyle reports, Gentlemen’s And Ladies’ Clubs and Refined Industrial.
