Tazmania Ballroom, Hong Kong
Tom Dixonâ€™s career has taken him from discovering the idea for the S-bend chair, to being one of the hottest designers of lighting, furniture and interiors and to occupying the chair of Creative Director at the venerable Finnish Artek.
Dixonâ€™s latest showpiece, Tazmania Ballroom in Hong Kong, opened recently in the Central District (Lan Kwai Fong). He wanted to create a British private-club atmosphere, but without the stuffiness.
The result is an exclusive and glamorous mix of a pool hall/private club/dance club/night club. Golden pool tables are magically lifted to the ceiling making room for one of Hong Kongâ€™s largest dance floors where resident DJs keep the carefully screened guests hopping with the latest Funktion One sound system.
British street culture is emphasized with the staffers attire: they wear Doc Martens and Fred Perry.
