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

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

Inspired by the shapes of traditional Indian water vessels. Beat Light - Tall is a pendant made from spun brass with a hand-beaten interior. Choose from high gloss white powder coat, black patinated finish, brushed brass, or grey with a silver-plated brass interior. Provides direct illumination.

Shown in brushed brass.

Tom Dixon

Born in Sfax, Tunisia in 1959, to a French/Latvian mother and an English father, Tom Dixon moved to England aged four and spent his school years in London. He dropped out of Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band Funkapolitan before teaching himself welding and going on to produce furniture.

Tom rose to prominence in the mid 1980's as "the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture". He set up 'Space' as a creative think-tank and shop front for himself and other young designers. By the late 1980's, Tom Dixon's international reputation grew, he was approached by Italian furniture design company, Cappellini, for whom he desinged the Iconic "S" chair. In the 1990's, he became a household name and Jack, his polypropylene "sitting, stacking, lighting thing" designed for his own company Eurolounge was a symbol of the age.

Tom Dixon's appointment as Head of the UK design studio at the furniture retailer Habitat in 1998 was considered controversial. He came from a self-employed background instead of a corporate culture and was never considered "establishment". Tom Dixon led the company through its biggest makeover and quickly won recognition by becoming Head of International Design in 1999 and Creative Director in 2001. He was the public face of a collective team responsible for rejuvenating the Habitat brand, while maintaining Terence Conran's dream of enriching everyday life through simple, modern design and creating a shopping experience that is theatrical and intimate.

In 2000, Tom's work was recognized by the award of an OBE by Her Majesty The Queen. His works have also been acquired by the world's most famous museums and are now in permanent collections across the globe including Victoria and Albert Museum, Museums of Modern Art New York and Tokyo and Centre Beaubourg (Pompidou).

"Honestly, I can't remember ever holding an ambition to be a designer. It just slowly came over me as I rejected notions of being an artist or, a craftsman. Even today I prefer the idea of being an industrialist."- Tom Dixon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Focal point of the room These are stunning. I am particularly impressed that there is no seam on metal. It really makes you wonder how they make them. Everything is top notch quality. One surprise is how dim they are. They really don't put out much light and the light is extremely gold in color. But after we got used to that aspect, we still love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended. Just installed the "Tall" version in our 12' x 12' dining room and it's the perfect size. Noticeable but not overpowering. Great finish & very high quality. Installation took 30 minutes. The brass gives off a great warm glow. Makes us feel like we're sitting at a fancy restaurant!

Can this fixture be retrofitted with a pull chain switch by a professional electrician?

Asked by: RModi
Hi there. That's an interesting question. It may be tough with the shape of this unit to find a retrofitting kit that would physically fit. The neck of the pendant is so slim with the socket beneath the pinch and the wiring laced through the top, and most retrofitting kits on the market right now are a bit clunkier. It's not an impossibility, but the manufacturer does not recommend it, and please do be advised that doing so would void any warranty. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you. Thanks for reaching out to us! Parin YLighting Customer Service
