Where form meets function

Tom Dixon is showing no signs of slowing down. This week, the UK-based product designer will bring a taste of London to Paris. Dixon and company will set up a pop-up fragrance shop called The Factory, complete with on-site production and packaging services, right in the heart of the city of lights.

Situated in Maison & Objet, the space will manufacture limited-edition products, distilling their London Scent in full view of visitors. It’s a rare opportunity to see how raw ingredients are extracted and turned into the heady blend of red brick, crocus and nettles that together mirror the olfactory experience of walking in the streets of London. The fragrance will be sold with exclusive accessories — MUD red brick diffusors and candles that are individually hand-numbered.

This month, Tom Dixon will also release new items like candle holders, bookmarks and more. Preview them all above and visit the Paris Factory this Friday, September 5, open through September 9.
