This new establishment is set to open up in the Italian city during Milan Design Week 2019. This new restaurant and showroom from acclaimed designer Tom Dixon will also be unveiling new furniture and lighting pieces.
After being absent from Milan for over a year Tom Dixon makes a comeback and this time a permanent one. The designer and his team have grown tired of showcasing temporarily in the event and in the city, so they’ve decided to take the chance in the opening of this establishment. The designer himself explained the main idea behind The Manzioni:
“We wanted to look at different ways of being present in Milan. With the city being so active and engaging right now, it is the right time to forget being temporary and build something permanent. Just like in London, we don’t think it’s enough to just have a showroom. We need a place where people slow down and experience our products in a live setting. There is nothing dustier than conventional lighting and furniture showroom. But with The Manzoni, people are able to experience our new collections in an active context.”
What will be so special about The Manzioni? The fact that it will be a restaurant and a showroom simultaneously. What’s more to this new establishment? The fact that is will showcase new furniture and lighting pieces in its opening in order to coincide with Milan Design Week. Tom Dixon will be presenting three specific new collections: Fat, Spring, and Opal.

Fat consists of a dining chair, high stool and lounge chair. The collection’s pieces were manufactured in Europe, made from molded foam with a metal leg launching in high gloss black lacquer made to order upholstery. The chair designed in a way that allows for multiple sitting positions.
Spring will consist of a series of three pendant lamps made up of stainless-steel strips. Aside from having pliant ribbons of stainless steel arranged like a whisk around the brand’s LED, they can be easily adjusted to a variety of silhouettes.

Lastly, we have Opal, consisting of two pendant lights, two-floor lights, and a surface light. All of these pieces are made with lighting translucent globes made of tinted white Opalescent polycarbonate. The material they’re made of allows the lamps to emit “a soft, diffused and flattering light”.
