New York City’s 25 Greene Street is now home to British designer Tom Dixon’s new double-storey showroom, which opened during the NYCxDesign festival. The designer experimented with several temporary locations for his studio before making New York’s SoHo neighborhood his permanent home. Dixon's eclectic furniture, homeware, and lighting, sit in the neighborhood featuring popular design brands such as Artemide, Flos and Lee Broom.
The 6,700-square-foot store occupies the ground and basement floors of a 19th century building featuring large windows with slender cast-iron columns, typical of the entire area that has been named the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. The column detail is continued in the interiors with white columns and decorated tops that create a contrast background for Dixon’s contemporary collection. The language of the columns continues in the defining different areas in the open-plan ground floor, notes Dezeen.
The ground floor houses the metallic pieces from the studio’s “The Blue, The Black, and The Silver” collection along with copper-layered kitchen and dining items for the “Tank” and “Brew” collections. Some of the highlights include Top Pendant Silver lights, Gold-toned objects, Mirror Ball light, and a shimmery copper-colored sculptural light. The basement features furniture pieces including the Wingback Chair, the S Chairs and Y Chairs, among others, adds Dezeen.
