Tom Dixon Shop: London

The Tom Dixon Shop in London, located in the historic Wharf Building on Portobello dock, is one of only three exclusive Tom Dixon showrooms world-wide. This unique setting in London, built right alongside the canal, used to be home to Virgin Music. After a complete refurbishment, it maintains the original features of traditional brickwork and exposed beams, which reflect the pure essence of London.


There are three unique Tom Dixon retail spaces in the world; New York, Los Angeles, and London. Here, in this unique setting, you can admire and acquire the full Tom Dixon range of contemporary designer lighting, furniture and accessories. You might even stumble upon Tom, the famous self-taught British designer who founded his own brand ‘Tom Dixon’ in 2002. Even if you don’t meet Tom, you won’t be disappointed with your visit to this beautiful store.


Shop the full collection of contemporary and innovative furniture: tables and chairs, mirrors and coat stands in a wide range of materials and processes, with upholstery fabrics from the renowned Kvadrat (a firm favourite here at SEEN). All of Tom Dixon’s products are designed in London, and are inspired by Britain’s unique heritage. For example, the iconic Fan Chair; Tom’s modern take on the classical Windsor chair, where spindles of wood are carefully turned, thinned and steam-bent to create the slatted silhouette that defines this design.


Tom is a master of lighting. Admire his pendant, floor and table lights, including the bestselling Copper Shade and Mirror Ball, and take home a classic piece, such as the Void Mini Brass pendant light, inspired by the Olympic medals; or something from the Melt collection, a series of distorted spherical pendant lights, half-metallised to create an extraordinary optic effect that cast an ethereal luminosity on their surroundings; another option is Curve, a new curved geometrical light that pushes the boundaries of thin sheet, etched, metal fabrication. With its microscopic precision-pierced surface and soft nickel-silver coating, Curve internally reflects and emits a filtered glow of ethereal light.


During your visit to Tom Dixon London, enjoy a spot of lunch and a drink at the Dock Kitchen, the restaurant located above the showroom. This fantastic dining space is run by Stevie Parle, and has proved fantastically popular with critics and customers alike. This is destination shopping at its finest; historic London, the uplifting interior design and somewhere great to eat and drink.
