A Conversation with Tom Dixon

Drones dropping books, interactive TV, Banksy's $60 art and more in our weekly look at the web

Tom Dixon’s aesthetic may have become a lot glossier since his days creating furniture from scraps of found metal during London’s post-punk DIY era, but the insightful and eccentric designer hasn’t changed his outlook much over the years. As he tells Port Magazine, he still prefers to approach any field with an experimental nature and childlike eyes. With his loyal pooch in tow, Dixon discusses the oddities of his name being used as a tool, life without a career plan and his recently published book, “Dixonary,” which charts the narratives behind his 30 years of work.
