Tom Dixon Sandwich — London, UK
The humble sandwich has been elevated - by designer Tom Dixon, no less. Led by a thoroughly comprehensive menu, which spans simple ham, cheese and pickle combos to decidedly more decadent poached lobster with mango relish fillings, Tom Dixon Sandwich sits on the third floor of luxury department store, Harrods. Dressed by Design Research Studio, the dedicated interiors arm of Tom Dixon’s firm, the 152 sq m café has obvious influences from London clubhouses by way of a palette of deep, rich emerald greens, burgundies and dark blues. Dixon’s hand is most visible in his signature brass lighting fixtures, which overlook marble topped tables, punctured mental screens and club chairs.
