British design studio Tom Dixon is set to captivate design enthusiasts and professionals alike with their upcoming exhibition "HYPERMOBILE" at the brand’s King’s Cross hub during London Design Festival.
Running from 16th – 24th September, the immersive exhibition invites visitors to explore the worlds of portability, miniaturisation and rechargeability.
The display will span eleven arches and spaces within the London showroom and office, each dedicated to a distinct theme, showcasing an array of new products. The PORTABLES took the design world by storm during their initial unveiling at Salone del Mobile in April and will be the focus of the brand’s HYPERMOBILE exhibition.
Tom says, “The frenetic world that we inhabit requires more flexibility and adaptability than ever before – that’s why we have adopted the theme of HYPERMOBILE for our installation, collaborations and events during London Design Festival. With Teenage Engineering providing ambulatory orchestrations throughout the building, Nothing showcasing their new smartphone and Ultimaker demonstrating a future micro factory unit - we focus our attention on the new possibilities that miniaturisation and movement have allowed, introducing our latest ideas in mobile illumination including the PORTABLES. Allowing us even more adaptability in how we work, play and entertain. The future, in our view is HYPERMOBILE."

With an aesthetic that is intrinsically inspired by the brand’s British roots, the products are internationally recognised and appreciated for their pioneering use of materials and techniques.
Founder and eponymous Creative Director Tom Dixon is a restless innovator who rose to prominence in the mid-1980s as a maverick, untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture. While working with the Italian giant Cappellini, he designed the widely acclaimed ‘S’ Chair. In the late 90’s Tom became Creative Director at Habitat and rejuvenated the brand while maintaining Terence Conran's vision of enriching everyday life through simple, modern design. In 2001, Tom was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen for his services to British design. In 2014 he was awarded ‘Designer of The Year’ at Maison & Objet, Paris. In 2019, he received a silver medal for Best Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and in the same year, was awarded the prestigious London Design Medal at the British Land Celebration of Design Awards. Tom is one of the industry’s most feted British designers and is internationally heralded as a significantly original talent.
Best-selling products such as Beat, Melt, S-Chair and Wingback are instantly recognisable and have been acquired by the world’s most famous museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; MOMA, New York; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. Latest additions to the brand’s range, such as the Fat chair, Spring lights and Swirl accessories are quickly gaining momentum and reiterate Tom’s status and significance in the design world.
