Competition: we've teamed up with British designer Tom Dixon to give away five copies of his new book, entitled Extremism, to coincide with Multiplex at the Dock as part of the London Design Festival.
The book is divided into seven chapters, each devoted to an extreme in design from extremely heavy objects to extremely technical pieces to extremely simple ones.
Each chapter is printed with a different combination of paper and ink, appropriate to its subject matter.
This competition has now closed.
Competition closes 18 October 2011. Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the bottom of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
In addition, a limited number of copies will be given out at The Dock each day this week.
Here are some more details from Tom Dixon:
Extremism is a new book published by Tom Dixon in collaboration with global paper manufacturer UPM. In a battle against compromise and the bland, the book explores the positive impact Extremist thinking can have on design.
Divided into 7 image-led chapters, the book covers a range of interpretations from Extreme Weight and Extreme Technology to Extreme Simplicity and Extreme.
Each chapter is printed on specifically chosen UPM paper with specially selected ink relating to the contents of each theme. The book discusses inspiration and manufacturing processes behind new products including the Bulb and Etch lights.
A limited number of the books will be given away each day at The Dock as part of London Design Festival 19 – 25 September. Tom Dixon will be launching 3 new products as part of the festival: Void Mini (a pendant light referencing the Olympic medals.) White Beat (a white take on the iconic Beat shade made of hand beaten brass) and Etch Light ( a meter wide acid etched brass shade fitted with tiny LEDs ). Other exhibitors at The Dock include Moooi, Aston Martin, Max Frommeld and Print Club London.
Congratulations to the winners! Jono Yang in Australia, Kaylene Lawry-Smith in New Zealand, Maris Takk in Estonia and Zara Ashby and Annabel Read in the UK all won copies of Extremism by Tom Dixon.
