Tazmania Ballroom, Hong Kong

Tom Dixon’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.

Dixon’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 Kong’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.
