Tom Dixon Beat Light Fat

The Beat Light Fat by Tom Dixon is part of a series of pendants inspired by the sculptural simplicity of cooking pots and water vessels found on the Indian subcontinent. The lights are handmade from brass which is spun and formed and then beaten by the renowned craftsmen of Moradabad in Northern India. Once beaten the lights have to be spun again so that any irregularities can be removed leaving a beautiful smooth outer surface that is either painted or brushed. The lights emit a warm localised illumination, perfect for over tables and counters and there is also a grey powder coated version with a beautiful silver plate interior for a slightly cooler glow. All the lights hang from a black or white woven fabric cable and terminate with a metal ceiling cone. With four different finishes and shapes to choose from, Fat, Stout, Tall and Wide the Beat Lights can be hung in groups of the same or in mixed company creating a beautiful collection of forms that, though very different, seem to harmonise through shared history.

Tom Dixon was born in 1959 in Sfax, Tunisia. Dixon rose to prominence in the mid 1980s as a talented untrained designer who set up ‘Space’ a creative think-tank and shop front. By the late 1980s, he was working for Cappellini for whom he designed the Iconic ‘S’ chair. He became a household name with Jack, his polyethylene sitting, stacking, lighting thing and in 1998 was appointed head of design by Habitat and later Creative Director. In 2001, Dixon was given an OBE and in 2002 established his own brand, launching its first accessories range at Maison et Objet, Paris. The company’s products are now sold in 65 countries. In 2007 Dixon launched Design Research Studio and has completed projects including Restaurant at The Royal Academy, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Barbecoa, as well as recently announcing their first ever hotel project, redesigning the iconic Thames-side Sea Containers House. His work has been acquired by great museums including the V&A, MoMA and the Pompidou, Paris.
