Beat Floor Light

Free-standing lights from Tom Dixon, Designed by Tom Dixon

Product description

Beat is a black floor light featuring a slender articulated arm that can be adjusted to direct the light beam. Made from hand spun brass sculpted by artisan craftsmen in Northern India, the creation of this Beat light is part of an ancient process that takes four days to complete. This contemporary floor lamp has a matte black finish which contrasts against its warm, golden beaten interior that is re-purposed to refract and reflect a soft and warm luminosity.

Perpetuating the skills of artisan craftsmen in Northern India, Beat’s origin is a re-purposed water vessel; hand-raised, welded, beaten and skimmed into functional silhouettes for the refraction of golden light.

In 2004 Tom was involved in an initiative in Jaipur to create alternative possibilities for the rapidly vanishing craftsmen and their skills. The Beat light was instigated during a NGO development project undertaken by the British Council and Tom Dixon in 2002, in an effort to maintain and develop the skills of street metalworkers of Rajasthan. The underlying proportions and techniques of traditional brass work used to create water vessels and cooking pots were used to create new objects of sculptural simplicity with a rethought functionality.

The creation of the beat light is part of an ancient process that takes four days to complete.
