King’s Cross has a new epicentre for design
The Coal Office at Bagley Walk Arches is a live studio combining shop, workshop, gallery and office all under one roof, with a brand-new restaurant and roof terrace (set to open in June).
Here’s what’s in store
The furniture shop features Dixon classics such as the S Chair, Pylon Chair and Bird Chaise – their graphic, pop-art silhouettes reengineered and recoloured, next to the softer shapes of the newer Wingback and Scoop chairs. The Lighting shop showcases the brand’s latest adventures in optics and reflectivity, while the gift shop stocks a selection of extraordinary objects for drinking and dining, perfectly packaged and ready for gifting.
The store also houses a haberdashery – a foray into weaving, sewing and embellishing with a focus on extreme textures, a perfumery, “a steamy space full of fragrance and flavour” and The Factory, which invites the public down into the coal arches to participate in acts of craft and manufacturing.
Tom Dixon’s flagship store is the first opening at Coal Drops Yard – the new shopping street at King’s Cross.
