An unlikely pairing of concepts will take center-stage at this week’s Milan Furniture Fair as adidas unveils its newest collaborative project, this time with renowned British industrial designer Tom Dixon. Billed as adidas by Tom Dixon, this debut collection will also mark a 2-year partnership between the two icons.
As an early champion of British design sensibilities, traditional craftsmanship, and the return of raw aesthetic, the collection features ultra-functional concepts such as a modular 5-in-1 overall that converts into either a coat, jacket, pants, skirt, or shorts. Consists of a travel solution that functions as either suitcase, backpack, and garment bag, the collection also includes padded parka that transforms into a sleeping bag and “ultralite” hoodies which revert into a travel pouch.
The new adidas by Tom Dixon will be on display throughout this week at the MOST pavilion during Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano.
