The intriguingly creative Tom Dixon design studio released a range of glossy black lighting designs this year which has become an interior design sensation. The ‘fetishistic’ black and glossy lighting accessories are created with a lustrous black lacquer that has been, in trends current and past, popular on traditional Japanese lacquer furniture or in Bauhaus interiors.
Fetishistic glossy Black is a current favourite. Something we've used inside the Coal Office, Kings Cross. On Thursday 10th May we open our doors and welcome our Architects & Designers to the Coal Office. This is a trade only event. We have an Open House the following week (18th – 19th May) which is open to the public. #tomdixonBLACK #tomdixonBELL #tomdixonWINGBACK #coaloffice #openhouse #design #kingscross
The design studio has also released a distorted lighting range called Melt. The lamps are coated with a layer of translucent pigment that transforms it into an even more magical object. The designer and his studio are currently experimenting with the boundaries of luminosity, semi transparence and reflectivity.
Now in a black smoke – we've experimented further with the distorted translucence of MELT. ⠀ ⠀ Come and see our latest colour explorations at our OPEN HOUSE events in London and New York. ⠀ ⠀ We open the doors to the Coal Office in London and our new store at 25 Greene Street in New York on Friday and Saturday (and Sunday in NYC).⠀ ⠀ #tomdixonMELT #tomdixonBLACK #tomdixonPLANT #opalescence #black #lighting #pendants #walllights #tomdixon⠀ ⠀ https://www.tomdixon.net/shop/colour.html
Tom Dixon’s 2018 lighting collection also includes electric blue lighting designs. The pendant lights are resurfaced with modern metal finishing techniques and other futuristic technique such as Physical Vapour Deposition.
Bringing the space-age and luminous trend into the fore of interior design this year is Tom Dixon’s range of silver pendant lights, the new bell table light that is supersized and sleek and the updated design of their Scoop chairs which now feature high-shine silver legs.
