Tunisian born, Dixon has lived in Britain since the age of 4. He founded the design company “Tom Dixon” in 2002 and is now regarded as a protagonist in the design firmament. Entirely committed to innovation, Dixon combines the creative with the commercial.

Tom Dixon fell into design by accident when he found himself with “time on his hands” while recovering from a motorcycle accident. He taught himself how to become a designer-maker in 1983 after discovering welding when trying to repair his motorbike. He was head of design at Habitat and continues to work as creative director of Artek, the Finnish furniture manufacturer founded by Alvar Aalto in the 1930s. His work is included in collections of the world’s leading museums, including London Design Museum, the V&A, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and Moma in New York.

Royalty is a reminiscence of tea time with a pot of Earl Grey, scones, strawberry jam and the drive home in a Bentley with tatty leather seats.

London calls to the smell of red brick, London parks with crocuses and nettles and the salty smell of the Thames at Dagenham.

Orientalist captures the faint memory of an Indian wedding with rose petal garlands, giant cinnamon sticks on beach stalls and the musky smells of the Chinese herbal market.

Now you just have to remove the marble lid, light the scented candle, and let the combined smell capture the essence of British life.

Enjoy !
