The Void Light Mini Suspension Lamp was created by the British design company Tom Dixon.
Dixon, born in Tunisia, did not take the traditional route to a career in design and is largely self taught. He first earned a reputation for using recycled materials, and he was instrumental in setting up "Space", a platform which acted as a shop window for talented young designers. In 1998, he joined Habitat as head of design and was part of the team that helped to breathe new life into the company. Dixon was awarded an OBE in 2001 for his contributions to design. The following year, he set up his own brand to create lighting and furniture that celebrated Britain's engineering heritage.
The Void Light Mini Suspension Lamp was inspired by the colours of the Olympic medals and is manufactured in solid metal sheets of brass, copper or steel that have been spun and pressed. The halogen bulb is virtually concealed in the sculptured concave recess, providing a soft, warm, almost mysterious light. With a diameter of 15.5cm and depth of 12cm, the lamp can be used on its own, while a combination of lamps in different colours creates an exceptional lighting display.
