Tom Dixon took his Royal Col­lege stu­dents on a field trip in In­dia and that was where the Beat Light orig­i­nated. The team spent days with lo­cal tin­ker­ers, brass beat­ers and mar­ble work­ers, ob­serv­ing and in­ves­ti­gat­ing how de­sign af­fects their liveli­hoods. Dixon dis­cov­ered a unique metal man­u­fac­tur­ing method and em­ployed this tra­di­tional tech­nique in the pro­duc­tion of the Beat Light pen­dant lamps. Each piece is spun and hand- beaten by skilled crafts­men of Mo­rad­abd in North­ern In­dia. The lamps, which come in four dif­fer­ent sizes, were in­spired by the shapes of tra­di­tional cook­ing pots and wa­ter ves­sels. Their black ex­ter­nal sur­face con­trasts to the warm, golden in­te­rior. You can hang just one, in pairs or the en­tire group to cre­ate a com­po­si­tion that is uniquely yours.

The Tom Dixon Beat Light pen­dant lamps are avail­able from Gu­dang.
