    “Everything is really about materials in their absolute simplicity. If possible, everything we make is informed by an absolute love of materials: cast-iron for its weight, copper for its warmth, etc. One common thread running through is materiality. This is our recipe.” – Tom Dixon

    Known for his use of honest and resilient materials, including copper, brass, marble, glass, cast iron and wood, Tom Dixon’s products are made to be used, played with, treasured or even better - given to your most favourite people. Tom Dixon rose to prominence in the mid 1980’s as ‘the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture.’

    Wanting to revive and celebrate British design and manufacturing, Tom Dixon launched his own brand in 2002. It is known the world over for innovative lighting, furniture, gifts and accessories.

    The Copper Lighting Series  - Launched in 2005, the copper lighting line has become a design staple. Both extravagant and beautiful, the Copper Shade uses a process called metallic vaporization, which achieves a perfect reflective surface on the shade’s exterior. The mirrored surface means these shades are extremely versatile, reflecting the environment in which they are placed. Equally striking as a single pendant or hung as a cluster, these amazing copper lights have become international best sellers.

  • Recycled + Recyclable: Up-cycling Makes Great Design
