Tom Dixon makes a variety of home accessories including seating, tables and other accessories. Most impressive, however, is his lighting which looks like it's from another world. Utilizing metals such as copper, and steel, his creations are unique, eye catching and are sure to last for years to come.

Tom Dixon's Void Lights come in either stainless steel, brass or copper, referencing the Olympic medals. Solid metal sheets are pressed, spun and brazed to form a double wall shade. Multiple lights can be hung together to create a neat effect.

The Pressed Glass Light Lens line of shades are made in industrial plans more commonly used to manufacturer car head lamps and glass insulators. Each shade in the collection is created by compressing molten glass into a hollow mould which is then annealed into a kiln to form a robust structure.

And last but not least, the Copper Shade is made by exploding a thin layer of pure metal onto the internal surface of a polycarbonate globe resulting in a highly reflective surface with a warm metallic glow.
