Defined by its archetypical silhouette, the translucent globe has been crafted from a blow-moulded, custom combination of opalescent plastic. Creating a striking, yet calming effect, the Surface Light can be positioned in the most minimal of settings, producing an inviting, soft glow. Whether used in a hallway, bedroom or kitchen, this simplistic, multipurpose piece is a wonderful addition to a contemporary space.
British designer Tom Dixon rose to prominence in the mid 1980s as “the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture.” By the end of the 1980s, he was designing contemporary chairs for Italian design brands like Cappellini before creating his own design company, ‘Eurolounge’, to make and sell his work.
2002 marked a new phase in Tom Dixon’s career with the launch of his eponymous design company which designs and manufactures a wide range of contemporary lighting and furniture inspired by the unique heritage, innovation and the robust, no nonsense engineering of British industry. Tom Dixon’s most iconic designs include the space helmet inspired Mirror Ball Pendant Light, Copper Shade, hand beaten Beat Lights and the Wingback Chair.
Tom Dixon was awarded an OBE in 2001 while one of his most recent accolades includes winning Designer of the Year 2008 from Architektur and Wohnen Magazine.
