- Lately we've noticed a resurgent love affair with the lightbulb. Whether it's unique shades acting as a glowing showcase or the bare bulbs themselves, we dig this look.
Though it looks like Flouro's polycarbonate shade could illuminate a room on it's own, it is, indeed, fitted for a bulb. Tom Dixon is quite fond of the eye-catching color, and it can be found on handful of other items in his collection.
Blown like bubble gum into a mould, these plastic spheres are metalized internally to give a mirrored finish. This internal metallic design focuses the brightness from the lamp, projecting a soft, broad beam of light.
Lighting designer Tom Dixon released this pendant lamp in 2006 at the Milan Furniture Fair. The shade is constructed of plastic polycarbonate and sheathed in a mirror-like copper finish.
- Tom Dixon’s latest collection for Milan in a few weeks is called Rough and Smooth with eight new product families. Dwell wants all of them.
- Tom Dixon just released the Etch Web Stainless Steel in Stockholm, a play off of the Etch Shades that debuted this past September.
