Tom Dixon Studio to relaunch iconic Pylon chair
29 Apr 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
Pylon was first designed more than 20 years ago
Originally conceived in his metal workshop in the early 90's, the Pylon chair was Dixon's attempt to create the world's lightest metal chair.

Now, more than 20 years later, the Pylon chair is being relaunched as part of a new collection, consisting of a series of lightweight and semi-transparent occasional pieces, that are designed as an homage to both the original collection, which was inspired by the humble electricity pylon, and the structural integrity of the triangle.

Billed as ' a light, strong, sculptural celebration' and 'an exercise in pure unadorned structure', the pieces are made from thin steel rods, measuring just 3mm in diameter, arranged in intricate triangular lattices that creates pieces that are both lightweight and incredibly strong.

Tom Dixon, creative director at Tom Dixon, says: "The making and remaking of the Pylon chair countless times, to try and reinforce weak points and prevent collapse taught me how to make things properly. It felt like a crash course in primitive structural engineering."

"The results made me believe more in the underlying structures of an object rather than their surfaces, and leaves me in awe of the skill of the structural engineer," he adds.

Other pieces in the collection include the Pylon coffee table and the Pylon small table.
