I have been aware of these truly unique and slightly industrial style lights by Tom Dixon for a while now, not least because the studio sits on the cool side of the canal opposite my office. I seem to have an innate ability to pick all things pricey, and so the likeliness of being able to spend £250 on a single light seemed slim. Imagine my excitement when a sample sale sign was spotted on the gate outside and so I promptly sharpened my elbows in preparation for the scrum. Well scrum it was! At up to 80% off, the trendy shoppers were whipping up a frenzy, grabbing everything in sight yet I managed to get my hands on four (yes I know) lights for the same price as one full price version, coming away with only minor bruises and all limbs intact; not bad.
Unfortunately this is just the start of the escapade, as it now involves electricians and rewiring logistics to put them where I want, so for now my lights are still waiting patiently, but I can’t wait to get them up and showing off their glowing glory, I know it will be worth the wait.
