British designer, Tom Dixon arrived in Hong Kong this week to officially open his first store in South East Asia. The duplex store takes a prime location on Hollywood Road, Central Hong Kong and comprises of Tom Dixon’s latest furniture, lighting and home accessories.
Commenting on the new Hong Kong shop, Tom Dixon said: “With an acceleration of interest for our work in this region, 52 Hollywood Road emerges as the new epicentre of our latest expansion in Asia. The two-storey showroom showcases a curated collection of our core products where charred timber cladding and grey marble fixtures complement the concrete floor and walls, and serve as a fitting backdrop to our metallic tones of copper, brass and chrome.”
The ground floor, on one of Hong Kong’s busiest retail stretches, offers a veritable Aladdin’s cave of home accessories. From bold table-top architecture to the scent of London itself, the copper cave houses a cabinet of Tom Dixon curiosities. Designed to engage and encourage interaction, shoppers are also invited to explore the versatility of the collections through a plug and play lighting track, and the designers tool box engineered to demonstrate finishes, colour and fabric options.
The café, operated by Nodi, offers a selection of artisanal coffee, small snacks and the perfect place to slow down and soak in the latest ideas in furniture, accessories and lighting whether you are an architect or just a design enthusiast.
Tom concluded: “As our second monobrand in the eastern hemisphere, 52 Hollywood Road represents the launch pad for many extraordinary adventures in Asia.”
Yesterday evening, design enthusiasts and industry principles gathered to celebrate the grand opening of the new TOM DIXON Hong Kong store.
