Seoul Gets First Tom Dixon Exhibition
Seoul’s 10 Corso Como will host Tom Dixon’s “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” exhibition from October 12 to November 20.
Seoul’s 10 Corso Como will host Tom Dixon’s “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” exhibition from October 12 to November 20. It will be the British designer’s first show in Korea, showcasing the creative highlights of his career, as well as never-before-seen pieces. A pop-up store will also be put up, where visitors can buy products from Dixon’s latest collection.
The “Yesterday” section will explore Dixon’s early works, fuelled by his fascination with the structures of objects. The “Today” section reflects Dixon’s current preference with materials such as copper, stone, wood, brass, wax, and iron. Finally, the “Tomorrow” section offers insight into Dixon’s future creations, with exclusive products and rare prototypes.
“We wanted to give visitors an understanding of where we come from. Korea is a very design-aware nation, fantastically interested in bold and industrial production, and we thought it might be nice to show some history as well as products we haven’t sold yet,” said Dixon, who founded Tom Dixon Studio at 2002 after leaving his position as head of design at Habitat.
Dixon and Corso Como’s relationship stretches back to 1991, when Dixon launched his “S-Chair” at Milan’s 10 Corso Como. The Seoul outpost was first opened in 2008.
