Tom Dixon's Beat Shades are a range of four pendant light fittings made from hand beaten brass using a traditional, rapidly vanishing skill from Indian master craftsmen.
design draws its inspiration from the shapes of water carrying vessels which are still carried on heads all over India. The beaten brass ages, creating a patinated black matt external surface in contrast to the warm golden interior. It is also available with a white gloss or brass exterior.
This is the Beat Shade Wide which had a shallow body and a wide brim.
Beat Shades look particularly good when grouped together, especially with one of each of the three styles.
