The Beat Black Floor Light is designed by Tom Dixon and made by Tom Dixon. A series of lights inspired by the sculptural simplicity of brass cooking pots and conventional water vessels on the subcontinent. The Beat lights are spun and hand-beaten by renowned skilled craftsmen of Moradabad in Northern India. 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 conventional techniques in their production. Inspired by the shapes of conventional Indian water vessels. Beat Floor Light is made from spun brass with a hand-beaten interior. The exterior is a black painted finish.
