Tom Dixon’s Statement Lights
Tom Dixon presents an ensemble of statement lights designed to offer warmth, elegance and luminosity to our living spaces. These sculptural illuminations have the power to instantaneously transform any room, casting shadows and weaving mesmerizing effects.
Tom says: ‘Extensive research has demonstrated that good lighting practices will improve your mood and inspire you to work and relax more effectively. Poor lighting can encourage deprived sleeping, decreased energy or even depressio. Interior spaces deserve to be properly considered and beautifully illuminated, so as we approach the multiplicity of winter festivals and celebrations, we’re sharing our ideas and solutions to keep darkness well at bay, and provide joyful, positive luminosity.’

The mesmerizing hot-blown glass effect of MELT evokes images of fire, molten embers and lava. Emitting an alluring yet mildly hallucinogenic light, MELT resembles a dancing fire or flickering flame, which stimulates a curious and tantalizing attraction.
SPRING is made of pliant ribbons of stainless steel which have been arranged like a whisk around a custom-made LED module. The semi-transparent shape relies on darkness as much as illumination to cast patterns onto its surroundings to create dramatic and atmospheric shadows and light play. Its flexible form can be shapeshifted to a variation of silhouettes.
The SPRING collection offers an exquisite interplay of light and shadow.

Bearing the mark of its maker, BEAT is a celebration of the beauty of things created by hand. Hand raised, welded, Beaten and finally skimmed on a lathe, the BEAT shades retain hammer marks from their forming. These lights, inspired by traditional Indian brass cooking pots and water vessels, offer a modern take on classic craftsmanship.
PORTABLES are like little companions paving the way to illuminate traditionally challenging spaces. both indoors and outdoors. Breaking the boundaries of traditional lighting, the PORTABLES allow you to carry light with you, wherever your journey takes you. Whether to illuminate a living room, patio, or garden, these lights are built to withstand various environments. With their skilfully engineered design and weather-resistant features, the PORTABLES can effortlessly enhance the ambiance of any space. With 3 dimmable settings, the PORTABLES have a 9-hour battery life before needing to be recharged.
STONE is a series of lighting and accessories inspired by the materiality of the same marble used to build the Taj Mahal. The hard, semi-precious surface which bears a unique fingerprint has transfixed architects, sculptors and designers for millennia, and for us too this is the dream material-tough yet tactile, heavy and long-lasting.
PRESS is a series of lights made from the thickest and most transparent glass with a satisfyingly rounded linear surface detail. The ribbed glass surface is designed and engineered to catch and refract light, projecting linear and stripy patterns. PRESS pendants and surface lights are reminiscent of shipping buoys and children’s toys.
All collections are available now, both online at Tomdixon.net and at our select hubs internationally.
