Tom Dixon’s Beat Lamp Shade (2007)

Ever since I first spotted Tom Dixon’s Beat Lamp Shades at Circa in St Kilda, I have adored them. Inspired by traditional copper pots, the series consists of four lights: Fat, Stout, Tall and Wide. Each is a different size and shape with a matt black exterior and beaten gold interior.

Interestingly, they seem to be used more frequently in commercial, especially hospitality spaces and less frequently in residential ones. Here are some of the best found on the internet.

And better yet, this year Tom Dixon extended the range to include white versions.
