Though it looks like a topsy-turvy bouquet of bubbles, this chandelier's 37 individual bulbs were made with molten glass, not soap and water.
The design and inception of the Beat Lights originated from a field trip to India on which Tom Dixon took his Royal College students. This light was inspired by the shapes of traditional Indian water vessels seen on this trek.
Designed by Ferran Freixa, fine strips of poplar wood are woven together to create a framework which constitutes the shade. The shade is supported by two metal circles allowing light to shine towards the ceiling and floor.
The Dear Ingo challenges preconceptions about everyday objects. Composed from 16 individual task lamps, the whole creates a dynamic chandelier. The spots can be directed, and the shape of the chandelier can be changed. Created in homage to the famed German lighting designer, Dear Ingo is now part of the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
