This October, Tom Dixon is going to present their first exhibition in Korea at 10 Corso Como Seoul, entitled “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow”. Set in Seoul’s creative district, 10 Corso Como is a world-renowned concept store presenting a unique mix of design, art, music, cuisine and culture from around the world.
For the first time, Tom Dixon is showcasing its full range of products as well as never-seen-before pieces. The exhibition comprises a Gallery divided in three curated installations (Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow) and a pop-up shop where visitors can purchase the latest home collection, fresh from Paris. Delving into past, present and future adventures, the Gallery tells the story of the self-made British designer who has become a household name.
Yesterday reflects Tom’s fascination for the underlying structures of an object – rather than their surfaces – and brings to life Tom’s early works, including Flame Cut Chair, Pylon Chair, Copper Chair CU29, Rocking Chair Rubber and Jack Glow in the Dark.
Today immerses the visitor in Tom’s long-term obsession with materials. The copper and the stone, the wood and the glass, the wax, the iron and brass all come to life with new shapes, new smells and new functions. Products showing in Today include: Mass Dining Table (brass), Fan chair (wood), Flask Pendant Oil (glass), Pylon Coat Stand (copper), Stone candles (green marble) and Alloy diffuser (raw aluminium).
Tomorrow is an insight into what the future may hold. Products showing include exclusive launches (Boom desk light) and rare prototypes.
Commenting on his upcoming exhibition in Seoul, Tom says: “This felt like a great opportunity not just to show the work that we are doing at the moment but to also show a bit of context in terms of how I became a designer, and also some experiments that we are working on at the moment that nobody has seen yet. Korea as a place with extraordinary history and a real interest in the future is the perfect country to tell this story and we are grateful to 10 Corso Como for giving us the perfect stage to present ourselves.”
