Lustre pendants lights, designed by Dixon in 2012, illuminate the surfaces in groups of four. The Tom Dixon Sandwich cafe is situated between the designer’s two concessions on the third floor of Harrods, in London’s Knightsbridge area. Tom Dixon Sandwich, which opened last month and serves various types of the traditional British tea-time snack, is furnished with pieces from the designer’s range. The remainder of the space is taken up by square tables, each surrounded by four bent-wood dining chairs and located below a circular arrangement of Dixon’s Beat pendant lamps in brass.
