Etch by Tom Dixon: the new 100cm diameter version will be launched at Multiplex

British designer Tom Dixon will host Multiplex, a pop-up viewing theatre, exhibition, shop and restaurant, during next month's Milan Furniture Fair. Working in collaboration with Blackberry, the designer will use the 400m² space to showcase his new collection across six interactive environments, including a science lab and hotel lobby.
