Resembling pressed glass beads that you might find on a piece of jewelry, these jewel-like lamps were launched last year by British design brand Tom Dixon.
Bead and Top pendant lights are inspired by molten globules of glass that come from the furnace ready to be blown.
Available in two styles, Bead and Top, these weighty glass pendant lamps distort the light as it filters through the dense pressed glass to give a magical luminosity. Bead and Top are mouth blown in an industrial plant that’s more commonly used to make architectural products such as car head lamps or glass insulators making the design exceptionally hardwearing.
About the Designer: Tom Dixon was established in 2002 as a British design and manufacturing company of lighting and furniture. The company has come into its own over the past decade with their knowing commitment to the up-and-coming and a smart mission to revive the British furniture industry (which many believe they’ve single-handedly done). Each year a new collection is released - like new versions of the Peg Chair family in this case - that is then distributed and sold in over 60 countries worldwide.
