Beat Waist Suspension Light - Black

$630.00
Designed by:  Tom Dixon
Manufactured by:  Tom Dixon

The Beat Light Series of suspension lights was inspired by a trip to India taken by Tom Dixon and his Royal College students.  While observing craftspeople manipulating the surface of spun brass by both beating and polishing the material, the qualities of light refraction and diffusion became evident. The diffuser shapes in the range were actually inspired by the various pots and vessels fabricated in brass.  

Noted here is the Beat Waist Suspension Light that features a generously-proportioned concave cylindrical diffuser form – a recent addition to the Beat Light Series.  It’s composed of smoothly polished brass that is finished with a matte black exterior.  Its interior sports a beaten texture that exquisitely refracts light that has been clear-coated to prevent oxidation.  Matching ceiling canopy is also in a matte black finish.  Manufactured by Tom Dixon.

Designed in 2016.

Overall Dimensions: 13” Diameter, 16.1” H; black fabric cord is 98.4”
Bulb Information: One 42W max E26 bulb (not included)
