Sean Dix’s was born in Kansas (USA), that purgatory from which some of the greatest creators have escaped – Charles Eames, Charlie Parker, and William ‘Count’ Basie.
As a young boy, he travelled extensively throughout the South Pacific and Southeast Asia as the son of a Peace Corps diplomat.
After returning to the United States, he studied fine woodworking in San Diego before moving to Chicago to study interior architecture and sculpture.
Sean then moved to Europe to study traditional furniture making in Dorset, industrial design in the Netherlands, and earn his masters in design in Milan, where he remained to work with some of the best designers in the world including Tom Dixon, James Irvine and Sottsass Associati.
In 2000, Sean opened his first solo design studio in Milan and quickly developed a reputation for his innovative and impactful projects for fashion companies, luxury brands and restaurants.
Today he operates his design studio from Hong Kong and has an extensive international client base including Moschino, Bluebell, Harrods, Byblos, La Scala to name a few.
He has lectured and taught at numerous schools around the world including IULM (Milan), Politecnico di Milano, Domus Academy (Milan), Beckman’s (Stockholm) and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
