Raw Design

Tom Dixon's last collection pays homage to industrial production processes, exposing the rough beauty of the manufacturing method and its own characteristic signs. In this article the rough personality of the Offcut stool.
Offcut stool

Unpretentious, honest, rough. This is the nature of the Offcut stool designed and manufactured by Tom Dixon using what's consider to be industrial rubbish, the discarded irregular and curved pieces of wood.
The stool comes flat-packed and can be easily assembled, the designer has chosen to use only wooden pegs which means no glue or nails are involved. We love the brand logo pin-fire marked in the wood, and the fact that this simple, straight forward object demonstrates how healthy and useful design can be.

    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
