Design buffs and industry professionals will be heading to Milan from April 4 to 9, for its annual furniture fair. This year’s edition of the Milan Furniture Fair sees British designer Tom Dixon present a new lighting collection, as well as other recent creations. Dixon¬†will be taking over an immense movie theater, Milan’s Multiplex, dating from the 1950s, to present his latest lighting collection.

New designs include a ceiling light called Cut with a futuristic aesthetic. The light’s highly polished, faceted design has a mirror finish when switched off but, when switched on, casts kaleidoscopic reflections over the room.

Tube, inspired by futuristic optics, is a cylindrical floor lamp perforated with cut-out circles. The Melt also returns in an updated version that can be mounted on a wall, ceiling or floor.¬†Design fans heading to Dixon’s exhibition can discover, for the very first time, the British designer’s collaboration with the Swedish furniture giant IKEA, in the form of a modular bed/sofa called Delaktig.

The designer’s first ever textile collection, Super Texture, will be heading to Milan too, with velvets, boucles, and knits featured on cushions and blankets. Colors and motifs include gray, yellow, blue, and black and white stripes. In addition, the exhibition includes Tom Dixon’s design classics, including the S Chair, the Bird Chair, the Pylon Chair and the Jack Light lamp.

The Milan Furniture Fair runs April 4 to 9, 2017.
