Istituto Marangoni announces Partnership with Tom Dixon

The international design school celebrates its 20th anniversary by joining forces with the celebrated British designer as mentor for its Design Courses
14 April 2023

Istituto Marangoni London announces its first design partnership with the acclaimed British furniture and product designer, Tom Dixon. The renowned international school, based around the world including London, Milan, Florence, Paris, Dubai, Miami, Mumbai, Shanghai and Shenzhen, has collaborated for many years with established professionals from the fashion and design industries, providing an opportunity for students to be guided and to learn directly from these creators before leaving to join their chosen industry. The appointment of Tom Dixon as a mentor for the London School’s BA (Hons) Interiors and Interior Design & Lighting graduating students is one of a number of announcements being made as part of the school’s 20th anniversary this year.

Working across workshops and masterclasses, Tom Dixon will be a mentor to Istituto Maragoni BA (Hons) Interiors and Interior Design & Lighting graduating students on their final graduating projects. He will be helping to support and shape the future of young talented designers, sharing his experience and imparting knowledge across a broad range of design disciplines, as well as providing hands-on feedback. This compliments Istituto Marangoni’s commitment to enhance student’s experience while providing a platform to create innovative products, develop creative vision and encourage business expertise.

“There are many pressing and urgent design problems that can only be solved by young, fresh and open-minded creatives. I hope my years of experience and knowledge can help turbocharge the students with confidence and enthusiasm to discover their own design voice through innovation, experimentation and enterprise,”  says Tom Dixon.

Tom Dixon is one of the most recognisable British names within the international design arena. The Creative Director of the eponymous brand ‘Tom Dixon’, that he established in 2002, specialises in the design of lighting, furniture and accessories that are appreciated for their pioneering use of materials and techniques. Rising to public prominence with his appointment as head of design at Habitat, he rejuvenated the brand later becoming its Creative Director. In 2007, Dixon launched Design Research Studio – an innovative interior and architectural design studio. He regularly exhibits new lighting and furniture collections during the Milan international Furniture Fair and London Design Festival, and his work is found in museum collections around the world. The company’s products are sold internationally in 90 countries.

“We are proud to provide added value to our design students via strong industry collaborations, and are excited to be partnering with Tom Dixon. His knowledge and industry know-how will be a huge impetus to our graduating design students in their thirst to develop and widen their skills, ready for the next step ahead in their design journey,” says Valérie Berdah Levy, Director of Istituto Marangoni London
