Many of our extraordinary objects are crafted by artisans using traditional techniques and local expertise. Bearing the mark of its maker, Beat is a celebration of the beauty of things created by hand.

In 2004 Tom was involved in an initiative in Jaipur to create alternative possibilities for the rapidly vanishing craftsmen and their skills. The Beat light was instigated during a NGO development project undertaken by the British Council and Tom Dixon in 2002, in an effort to maintain and develop the skills of street metalworkers of Rajasthan. The underlying proportions and techniques of traditional brass work used to create water vessels and cooking pots were used to create new objects of sculptural simplicity with a rethought functionality.

Each Beat light is now made from hand spun brass sculpted by artisan craftsmen in Northern India. Hand-raised, welded, beaten and finally skimmed on a lathe, they retain hammer marks from their forming. Beat’s polished interiors were originally designed to be hygienic and clean for use, now the painstakingly beaten interior is re-purposed to refract and reflect a soft and warm luminosity. The creation of the beat light is part of an ancient process that takes four days to complete.

Beat Fat Pendant Brass

A solid brushed brass version of the famous original Beat Light. Without a contrasting exterior finish, Beat is left in its purest form – a warm golden brass both inside and out. The plain brass exterior is then brushed to achieve a matt surface and finished with a clear lacquer. The Beat Light can be used in many different configurations to create a dramatic statement. Hang them individually or as a group using one or more of the shapes and one of our round or linear pendant systems.

Beat Tall Pendant White

A recoloured white version of the famous original Beat Light. The exterior is lacquered in a gloss white, contrasting with the warm, golden interior. The Beat Light can be used in many different configurations to create a dramatic statement. Hang them individually or as a group using one or more of the shapes and one of our round or linear pendant systems.
