Coinciding with the 2022 Salone del Mobile, British designer Tom Dixon returns to Milan to celebrate his eponymous brand's 20 years of illustrious history. The anniversary is marked by an exceptional exhibition featuring a thoughtfully curated collection of the brand's most iconic pieces along side new and unseen creations.


The brand's collections are presented in two locations, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the newly adapted, revised, and reimagined innovations that provide a reflective yet future-thinking overview of the most popular design pieces produced by Tom Dixon over the last two decades. Home to Sotheby’s galleries and offices, the TWENTY exhibition is located within Palazzo Serbelloni, a neoclassical palace, while The Manzoni, Tom Dixon's hub in Milan, showcases their existing best-sellers and new range items.

In a press release earlier this year, Tom mentioned: "A twentieth anniversary provides a moment to review, adapt, upgrade and rethink some of the designs that we have produced, but also to introduce some of the latest thinking in materiality, longevity and luminosity for the near future.’


Additionally, the company’s CEO Hans Hoegstedt stated: "We are proud of all the achievements our Studio has accomplished in 20 years, a relatively young age, and we are excited to present these fascinating insights and updated creations from Tom Dixon and Design Research Studio in April. TWENTY allows us to jump into the archive and unearth our beloved treasures from Wingback to Beat and Melt to some of Tom’s earliest designs, and inject each one with a revitalized patina for a new generation."
