Super shiny seventies style in an unexpected hue - Copper. A question to ponder for color month...why does copper read as a "color" while chrome and gold feel like neutrals? Somehow this lamp is simultaneously futuristic/retro and cool/warm; its got that meeting of opposites that we always find interesting in a design.
We admire Tom Dixon's work - especially his eye and feel for working with metallics. The process of creating this lamp is complex; it is made from a blown plastic bubble that then coated with a film of pure copper using a "vacuum metalization" process. It is also available in a chrome finish, created using the same procedure.
