NEWS: Tom Dixon To Relocate Headquarters To Kings Cross
British brand to move lock, stock and barrel to the area's new retail district in March 2018.
London, September 2017. We are delighted to announce today that we will move from our current home at Portobello Dock to Kings Cross in March 2018.
We will relocate to The Coal Office, a 17,500sq ft complex - historically a coal distribution centre - to create a new flagship shop, showroom, office, restaurant and café.
Part of the new Coal Drops Yard retail quarter, our new Headquarters has further been conceived as a hub for designers and design, with partners to be confirmed in due course.
Originally dating back to 1851, the Coal Office building follows the curve of the Regents Canal and is undergoing restoration as part of the redevelopment of Kings Cross. It is located within Coal Drops Yard, a new shopping quarter set to open as a whole in autumn 2018.
With a focus on fashion, craft and culture, Coal Drops Yard will fuse the traditional with the contemporary, housing a unique mix of established and emerging retailers.
Individual and independent shops, signature retail brands and new concepts from home and abroad will come together with cafés, bars, restaurants and public spaces to create a new shopping destination for London.
Tom Dixon says: "For us it was imperative not just to find a new office or shop. It was vital to find a new home. London isn't just another city. It is where it all started. We will use these 17,500 sq feet in this incredible location as a platform to broadcast our latest ideas in interior design, product innovation and experiments in food, functionality and future living."
Craig White, Project Director at Argent (Kings Cross) adds: 'We are delighted to announce that Tom Dixon will be moving his eponymous brand to Kings Cross. As one of Britain's greatest creative minds, and indeed one of the world's leading designers, Tom's arrival in the area confirms Kings Cross burgeoning credentials as a global hub of creativity, as a location for Britain and the world's most exciting and forward-looking retailers and as a true destination for shoppers and general visitors alike. We look forward to welcoming all to Coal Drop Yard when it opens in 2018.
