John Burnham Dixon

John Dixon is a furniture and housewares designer, and Assistant Professor of Practice in Industrial Design at the University of Cincinnati. 

For the last decade John has been exploring the influence making, language, and the physical manifestation of concepts has on his design process. Often times his products are born from a word, phrase, or already existing object, working top down rather than bottom up. Regularly called a "maker," John has focused on the process of making, and manipulating material as a major force within his work, allowing him be informed and inspired by material and process, rather than limited by them.
