Modern Tom Dixon Cappellini Orange Pylon Chair
This is an original Tom Dixon Pylon Chair from Cappellini, from 2010. Originally created on a self-propelled mission to design the world’s lightest metal chair Pylon was originally made in small series in Dixon’s metalwork shop in the early nineties. The last twenty years it has sat within the Cappellini collection, and is now being made again by the original skilled metalworker who was taught to weld by Tom. The lattice work of 3mm diameter steel rod is triangulated for maximum strength – an exercise in pure unadorned structure. The original inspirations which ranged from early computer programming, electricity pylons and architectural models of bridges are clearly visible in this joyful exercise in self-taught structural engineering. The Pylon chair, whilst possibly not being the most comfortable chair in the world, is certainly one of the most recognisable and unique. If you try to but this chair new today, it is only available in a bright royal blue – this orange color is a rare find.
