New Seating Collection by Tom Dixon for George Smith
British designer Tom Dixon has created a new seating collection to be produced by George Smith at its factory in Newcastle, England. The collection celebrates the traditions of British upholstered furniture with each piece hand made by George Smith using long established techniques practiced for over 250 years. Skilled craftsmen, including generations of the same family, employ the use of traditional skills such as joinery, hand sewing and upholstery. These skills are kept alive through an apprenticeship scheme which ensures the knowledge and techniques are passed down from generation to generation supporting the British industry.
