Architectural Profile: Tom Dixon’s Coal Office
Once “the debaucherous The Cross nightclub,” The Coal Office in London’s industrial Coal Drops Yard is the new home for Tom Dixon, designer extraordinaire.
The Coal Office is an all-encompassing sensory delight. See the exposed brick and serpentine arches in the Lighting and Furniture Shops. Smell the scented candles and lotions in the Perfumery. Feel the smooth fabrics and soft textures at the Haberdashery. Hear the music of the spheres on the roof terrace (or recorded beats during special events that honor the space’s disco heritage). And taste delicious dishes at the Coal Office Restaurant, featuring renowned Chef Assaf Granit.
Tom Dixon’s Coal Office combines studio, workshop, office, and shops “as a multi-disciplinary platform for innovation in design.”
This beautiful reclaimed space is a perfect backdrop for the work of Tom Dixon, a designer with a host of pieces already considered icons.
From the distorted Melt series to the sculptural Beat lights, the mechanical Screw Table to the enveloping Wingback Chair, Tom Dixon pieces showcase the British designer’s innovative streak and material focus.
