fat spot light

fat spot light

Design Tom Dixon, 2006
Polycarbonate shade & base, vacuum metalized
Made by Tom Dixon

A floor or table light inspired by theatrical lighting. Fat Spot is created by using an electrical charge to explode a thin layer of copper onto the interior surface. Both the shade and base can be adjusted to direct the light beam.

The Fat Spot Light was manufactured using a special vacuum metallization process which has been developed over a number of years by Tom Dixon in partnership with their factory. The technically complex nature of this process (i.e applying a very thin layer of real metal to the internal surface of a polycarbonate form, which is then UV coated) requires highly skilled workers, specific machinery and clean environments to meet demanding quality levels. Metalized polycarbonate products must only be stored & installed in temperature controlled environments to preserve the quality of the product. Please take greater care when handling and installing.

shade: 12.9" L | opening: 6.7" dia. | base: 7.9" dia. | 118" L black cable with inline switch
requires: 60W G30 white globe bulb
