The Tom Dixon 'Lustre Pendants' Shine a Light on History

These Tom Dixon 'Lustre Pendants' act as levitating historic gems, adding a little bit of ancient history into modern homes.

Each is handmade and hung from the ceiling in shades ranging from bronze to muted lime. Their iridescent sheen looks rugged, thanks to its uneven texture. Given the metallic finish, they look like they could have been welded coarsely by blacksmiths. The tiered structure of these lamps make the hanging fixtures look like Mayan temples, and are contrasted by other cylindrical or box-like designs that are modern but arcane.

These pieces are part of the studio's 'Luminosity' collection and will be showcased in the London Design Week 2012.
