Tom Dixon Mirror Ball Gold

Every once in a while someone comes up with not only a new manufacturing process but also the perfect new product to demonstrate it, the best selling Mirror Ball by Tom Dixon is such a product. The original idea was to emulate a polished chrome sphere shade and to achieve the desired mirror surface a thin layer of pure metal was exploded onto the inner surface of a polycarbonate globe. The result however was slightly unexpected as the new technique created a surface of such extraordinary reflectivity that it surpassed even the most polished of metals. The Mirror Ball reflects everything around it with incredible clarity and being polycarbonate is very light and can be hung from non structural ceilings or in spectacular groupings. Available in 25, 40 and 50 cm diameters and now in gold the Mirror Ball is a light that looks as good in the daytime as it does in the evening and is guaranteed to always make the most of its surroundings.

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.
