Press Pendants (2023)
Made by Tom Dixon
Press is a series of lights made from the thickest and most transparent glass with a satisfyingly rounded linear surface detail. Aptly Cone, the shapes is reminiscent of shipping buoys and children’s toys. The ribbed glass creates diffusion of the light source and projects linear and stripy patterns. Bold in silhouette and simple in function, Press is manufactured by dropping massive globs of molten glass at 1,200 degrees centigrade, pressed in iron moulds under tons of pressure to create immensely durable lights.
