We need a place where people slow down and experience our products in a live setting. There is nothing dustier than conventional lighting and furniture showroom. But with The Manzoni, people are able to experience our new collections in an active context

During the opening of this new restaurant and showroom, Tom Dixon will be showing off three specific new collections: Fat, Spring, and Opal. These furniture collections will be first introduced to the public during Milan Design Week by Tom Dixon himself.

The first one will be available as a dining chair, high stool and lounge chair. The collection’s pieces were manufactured in Europe, made from molded foam with a metal leg launching in high gloss black lacquer made to order upholstery. The chair specifically is designed to allow for multiple sitting positions.

The second collection by Tom Dixon is a series of three pendant lamps made up of stainless-steel strips. A special feature of these three lamps is the fact that they had pliant ribbons of stainless steel arranged like a whisk around the brand’s LED, and can be easily adjusted to a variety of silhouettes.

Lastly, we have the collection Opal whichwill consist of two pendant lights, two-floor lights, and a surface light, all of them made with lighting translucent globes made of tinted white Opalescent polycarbonate. These lamps have a ghostly sense to them both in daytime and nighttime, emitting “a soft, diffused and flattering light”.
