Base Floor Light by Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon is famed for his work with a variety of metals in his lighting collection and his Base Floor Light is a fine example of why his work is so prized for both residential and commercial interiors. Clean lines and interesting combinations of material make this lamp equally at home in spaces large and small.

The heavily weighted, matte cast iron base is eminently practical and virtually impossible to tip over. It resists scuffs and scratches and takes up a small footprint with its square base and open pyramid sides. The slender stem of the pole runs straight up to an impressively large shade of satin-polished spun brass. The striking contrast between the industrial construction of the black iron and the warmth of the spun brass gives the Base Lamp just enough richness to lend elegance to an executive’s office or an informal family room.

The shade’s highly reflective surface sends out a warm glow to touch nearby surfaces with a golden haze of light for reading or relaxing.

Dixon’s combination of industrial construction and warm colors in brushed finishes creates a rustic yet polished whole that’s pared down to the essentials. Standing next to a leather chair or wool sofa, the Base floor light will lend extraordinary presence to any room.
