'Void', a mysterious lighting object with a double wall spun construction available in solid copper, brass or stainless steel will be among the new products to be launched by British designer Tom Dixon in Milan this April.
The collection in full will be called 'Industry' and presented at Superstudio Piu in Zona Tortona, where the Tom Dixon team will also be assembling digitally-manufactured brass lamps on the stand. The lamps will be available either flat-packed to the size of an envelope, or assembled in full on site.
What would normally be a static trade show booth will be transformed into a 'Flash Factory', where the process of industrial production will be brought directly to the customer.
The installation aims to demonstrate new found power of the designer, as a digital manufacturer, able to access world markets with fresh products in previously unimaginable time scales.
