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.
