There’s finally been a shift away from the warm tones of copper and brass dominating metallic shades in recent years; Tom Dixon has launched a crisper, fresher palette, taking inspiration from pop art and space. This lamp has been coated in a lustrous black lacquer that is slightly translucent, playing with luminosity, transparency, and reflections when turned on.
