Melt Pendant Lights

Melt is a beautifully distorted lighting globe that creates a mesmerizing melting hot blown glass effect. Translucent when on and mirror-finish when off, it emits an attractive, mildly hallucinogenic light. Hang as a standalone statement pendant or a few together to create a striking centre-piece for any room. Mix the copper, gold and chrome versions to maximise the dramatic effect.

Always re-invented but true to our core interests – a never-ending research into shape, texture and inishes, an obsession with manufacturing techniques and a deep vein of narratives that come from a uniquely eccentric British standpoint.

Tom Dixon:

With MELT, our experiments in the technologically advanced field of vacuum metallisation takes on a new twist. MELT is a distorted lighting globe born from our collaboration with Swedish radical design collective FRONT.
