Tom Dixon hosted events at and near his offices at The Dock, a year-round restaurant situated along a narrow canal in West Kensington. The stand-out product, however, was a flatpack boat by two 2011 RCA graduates, Max Frommeld (pictured here) and Amo Mathies [Max is pictured in the boat in one of the photos] who milled a high-density polyethylene plastic to create “live hinges” that can be folded over and over again a minimum of 6000 times. It will retail for only 800 pounds (about $1,250) in a package that includes oars, watertight cushions and a safety device.
