BALLROOM BLITZ // 30th March 2011
Designer Tom Dixon is not the kind to stay still. Well known for his lights and lamps, he also exhibits his creations around the world in different spaces and fairs. Creations that lie halfway between art and design.
This doesn’t prevent him though from imagining new interiors for very special customers. One of his last project was defining the look and feel of Tazmania Ballroom in Hong Kong, a pool hall that has the ability to transfer into a wide dancefloor. Indeed, a special system also designed by Tom Dixon, allows to lift two of the three pool tables and suspend them from the ceiling.
The first steps into the venue bring visitors at the bottom of a dark staircase. Once at the top, guests discover the dancefloor/pool hall: a contemporary lounge with ample seatings, an elevated booth, billiards, a bar and an outdoor balcony.
