Gentlemen's clubs aren't really where we hang out, but if they were styled by Tom Dixon we'd be first in the queue. Dixon's collection of furniture, lighting and accessories, due to be shown in the grounds of Milan's Fiera this April, has been carefully chosen to evoke the atmosphere of a stylish club privé, but with modern-day dandies in mind.
New additions to the popular 'Beat' lighting range include four delicious matt grey pendants with shimmering silver interiors. Sleek 'Flood' pendant lights, inspired by car headlamps, feature dimmable LEDs and come in cool chrome and opulent gold. You're going to need somewhere to sit with that negroni and the sculptural 'Pivot' chairs should do just the trick. Set on rotating aluminium bases, the range features a stately high-back chair, a clubby low-back chair and a 'one for the road' bar stool, all covered in gorgeous Kvadrat fabrics. You know, I think we'd better reserve a place at the bar ourselves...
