Step into the Void with designer Tom Dixon and encounter a soft ethereal glow from the pendant light's contoured reflecting shade. Inspired by shiny Olympic medals, Void's otherworldly effect comes from the double-wall form, fabricated from solid brass sheets. In a choice of finishes, the fixture is then lacquered to create a mirror surface and hand-polished to a high gloss. With the LED light source artfully concealed, Tom's signature minimalism leaves an intriguing air of mystery in its wake.

“If there are rules to design, I don’t know what they are,” says self-taught British designer Tom Dixon. “I just have ideas and I want to see what happens if I put them out there.” Tom’s errant first stab at creativity was playing bass in a 1980s disco group. Then a stint honing his welding skills in a auto body repair shop eventually led to his design breakthrough for Cappellini with the iconic S Chair. With products in more than 60 countries today, his contemporary lighting, furniture, tabletop and barware ranges and accessories have been “put out there” to wide acclaim.
Based in Portobello, London, the Tom Dixon brand launches new collections of lighting and furniture biannually in Milan and London. “What’s interesting about the modern world [is that] you don’t need to attract large amounts of people globally to be a successful designer,” Tom says. “You can be quite focused and do specific work and people will come to you if they’re attracted to it.”
