Now that a well designed object has once again gained the appreciation of the masses and there is a wider understanding of the benefit of good design, some designers are getting a celebrity like status. There are also some celebrities that want to be designers…but that is for another day. First a designer gets maybe a fabric line, then a furniture line, and it builds and builds. Which is wonderful for them, but sometimes I wonder if manufactures are just cashing in on a name and not taking the results of their collaboration seriously enough. On the other hand there are Industrial Designers like Tom Dixon who seem to be able to bring something fresh to everything he touches. So often I would be looking through design magazines and come across something I adored. Taking that precious extra second to actually read who was responsible for it, I would see Tom Dixon’s name. Take a look at some of his drool worthy pieces.
