Clever Ep. 118: Industrial Designer Tom Dixon

In this episode of Clever, recorded for the WantedDesign Online Conversation Series, Amy Devers talks to industrial designer Tom Dixon, who discovered the transformative power of clay at a young age. Later, after dropping out of art college, he toured with his band and when a motorcycle accident ended his bass playing career, he taught himself to weld. Now his eponymous global design brand specializes in furniture, lighting, accessories, and interiors. After 30+ years as a designer, he still fancies himself a rebel, thriving in chaos and experimentation.
