Wealth Redistribution? There is a lot of great material in the newest T Style Magazine � Design & Living Winter 2007. The first article we chose to tackle was Re-Arranging the Furniture, a look at Tom Dixon and how he's challenging the conventions of the furniture business. Dixon talks about modernizing the business in a way that flips it on its head � giving away furniture...

He achieves this through sponsorships and by selling limited editions for many thousands of dollars (financing the giveaways). He's already done this twice in London with 2006's Great Chair Grab and this year's Great Light Giveaway. Now he is planning a similar giveaway in New York, funded by limited edition chairs currently on sale at Moss. He has also challenged convention with his 2nd Cycle program he initiated as creative director for Artek. This short piece is a must read!
