Design Tom Dixon, 1991
Powder-coated steel rods
Made by Tom Dixon

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 Pylon was originally made in small series in Dixon's metalwork shop in the early nineties.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 coming back - once again being made 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. Now powder coated in a bright royal blue the Pylon chair, whilst possibly not being the most comfortable chair in the world, is certainly one of the most recognizable and unique.
