·An indispensable compendium on designers to be discovered·A wonderful atlas of objects with a rich portfolio·In addition to being an educational instrument for students, the series will address an audience of both specialists and non-specialists, journalists or anyone wishing to collect useful information for the purpose of understanding design todayTunisian-born designer Tom Dixon's career took off in the 1980s when, as an ex-musician and a self-taught welder, he began working for Italian design giant Cappelini. His iconic 'S' chair design produced for Cappelini and his 'Jack light', created for his own company Eurolounge, made him an iconic household name. Dixon's creative process is unusual in that his ideas originate from the tools and materials he has selected, rather than vice versa, creating unique contemporary objects.In 1998, Dixon was appointed Head of Design by household furnishing retailer Habitat, later becoming Creative Director until 2009. The Tom Dixon brand has gone from strength to strength, expanding to house an interior design arm that has taken on projects such as top restaurants in the UK and abroad. He has been recognized with a plethora of awards and nominations, including most notably an OBE.Published in the same style of the successful Minimum Architects series, the Minimum Designers series includes books about the major figures in the field of design, creators of objects that have become a part of our daily lives. The lamp on our desk, the chair we are sitting on, or the glasses we are wearing' ;all have a genius behind to be discovered.These volumes will introduce in a practical manner the personalities and the works of the world's major designers by way of a historical-critical introduction to the work and life of each individual designer. An accurate selection of the designer's most famous objects arranged in chronological order and a critique of his or her work summarizing the most significant reviews published in magazines and newspapers will complete the subject.
