Tom Dixon will move to King’s Cross in 2018
Last month, it was announced that world-renowned London design brand Tom Dixon has chosen King’s Cross as its new home and will relocate from its home current home at Portobello Dock in March 2018.
Tom Dixon will create a new flagship store, showroom, office, restaurant and café within the Coal Office – a 17,500 sq ft complex that sits just off of Granary Square.
Part of the new Coal Drops Yard retail quarter, the Headquarters has further been conceived as a hub for designers and design, with partners to be confirmed in due course.
Originally dating back to 1851, the Coal Office building follows the curve of the Regent’s Canal, and is undergoing restoration as part of the redevelopment of King’s Cross. It is located within the Coal Drops Yard complex, a new shopping quarter set to open as a whole in autumn 2018.
“For us it was imperative not just to find a new office or shop, it was vital to find a new home” said Dixon, speaking to Dezeen. He went on to say “London isn’t just another city. It is where it all started. We will use these 17,500 square feet in this incredible location as a platform to broadcast our latest ideas in interior design, product innovation and experiments in food, functionality and future living.”
Having moved to King’s Cross in 2016, designjunction is proud to be located within an area that is firmly establishing itself as one of London’s most exciting design destinations.
