Flask Pendant

: Made of two hand-blown glass globes, representing a mysterious chemistry experiment involving a flask and hood, the Flask Pendant reflects light with a ridged and rounded base and a smoked glass globe that reduces glare.

Cell Pendant: Available in short and long models, the Cell Pendant is based on the idea of cellular growth. Designed to be arranged in a range of configurations, each "cell" is made from etched and polished brass, which casts intricate shadows on the surrounding surfaces.

Bell Lamps: Both the Bell Table and Bell Floor lamps continue Tom Dixon's explorations into highly polished surfaces. Formed from a dome suspended over a chrome-plated, pressed steel dome, the design's mirrored surfaces allow it to reflect its surroundings.
