Tom Dixon Melt Pendant Copper
With Melt, our experiments in the technologically advanced field of vacuum metallisation take on a new twist. Melt Copper is a distorted lighting globe born from our collaboration with Swedish radical design collective Front. The light bouncing and reflecting around the uneven surfaces creates a dramatic melting hot blown glass effect. Melt is translucent when on and mirror finish when off. Its internal luminosity is visible in full daylight. At night, it emits an attractive, mildly hallucinogenic light, akin to recent Hubble Telescope images of the cosmos.
