Design by Tom Dixon, 2014.
The design and inception of the Beat Lights originated from a field trip to India that Tom Dixon took his Royal College students on. Their mission was to investigate how design affects the livelihood of different cultures and peoples. They spent days with local tinkerers, brass beaters and marble workers. It was there that they discovered a method of metal manufacturing that appealed to them because of its heritage and unique aesthetic. The Beat Lights employ these traditional techniques in their production.
The Beat 6 Light Multipoint Pendant system allows the creation of luminous clusters within a single, self-contained unit. Concealing unsightly wiring within the suspension cables, each system includes a round multipoint canopy in a white powder coated finish, with pendants offered in black powder coated finish. Pendants are composed of spun brass with a hand-beaten brass interior, canopy is constructed of steel. UL listed.
Note: Canopy requires a skilled electrician for installation, see instructions for details.
