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.
The Beat 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 external surface in contrast to the warm golden interior. It also comes available with a white gloss exterior.
This is the Beat Shade Wide which had a shallow body and a wide brim. It comes with a black metal ceiling rose.
Beat Shades look particularly good when grouped together, especially with one of each of the three styles.
