TOM DIXON’S FIN LIGHT

With Fin Light, Dixon uses cutting edge technology to highlight form as function. The heat sink, an external aluminum component used to cool electrical equipment, serves at once as both shade and light. Rounding out the bottom, an acrylic lens diffuses 6 LEDs into a scallop-edged broad beam of light. Displayed here as part of Dixon’s Luminosity exhibition in MOST, Fin Light is as forward thinking as it is fashionable.

TOM DIXON’S ETCH LIGHT WEB

Inspired by both science and nature, Dixon’s Etch Light Web uses digital photo-acid etching to create a spherical web of irregular pentagrams. Suspended within the 65cm wide shade, an oversized LED bulb casts dancing patterns of light and further highlights the beauty to be achieved in the collaboration of nature and technology.

    I loved this exhibition, which showcases british design, and I loved SWELL at the Accademia di Brera too, although it was quite hard to see as it was packed.
