The Beat light was born from an initiative in the city of Jaipur to create alternative possibilities for the rapidly vanishing craftsmen and their skills, created by the renowned artisan craftsmen of Moradabad in Northern India.
The interior of each piece bears the beaten marks of its making, spun brass, braised and beaten by hand. Each piece is unique and a testament to a time-consuming and centuries old process – it can take up to four days to make one light.
For 2017, new shapes join the BEAT family. Tom Dixon has designed more architectural scale lighting for Beat, to complement their Stout pendants. Beat Waist and Beat Flat boast a fresh silhouette and gives off greater light output.
