Design by Tom Dixon, and introduced to the US market in 2007.

Made in India, for Tom Dixon.

Introduced to the U.S. market in 2007, this series of lights was inspired by the sculptural simplicity of brass cooking pots and traditional water vessels in India. The Beat Light – Tall is spun and hand-beaten by renowned skilled craftsmen of Moradabad in Northern India.

The design and inception of the Beat Lights originated from a field trip to India taken by Tom Dixon and his Royal College students. Their mission was to investigate how design affects the livelihood of different cultures and peoples. They spent days with local tinkers, brass beaters and marble workers. It was here that they discovered a method of metal manufacturing that appealed because of its heritage and unique aesthetic. The Beat Light – Tall employs these traditional techniques in its production.

Includes black metal 4.9″ diameter ceiling canopy.
