Tom Dixon, Eleanor Nadimi
Season 1, Ep. 3
When Tom Dixon fell into the design scene in the 1980s he viewed himself as very much outside of the establishment. His work was experimental and he formed a collective with other young designers like Thomas Heatherwick to create what they wanted. But he quickly became noticed, then lauded, then part of the establishment, then its figurehead, designing iconic products like his Copper Ball pendant, creating the interiors for Shoreditch House and Sea Containers House, and running an empire at Coal Drops Yard in London's King's Cross. Here, he talks about how he did it.Plus Eleanor Nadimi from One Night Eight Five, a textile and accessory company that launched in 2016, shares her experience of setting up an interiors brand.
