Beat is an extraordinary mega chandelier featuring one Beat Flat, nine Beat Fat and nine Beat Waist ceiling lights in a matte black finish which contrasts with the warm, golden interior. Each Beat light is made from hand spun brass sculpted by artisan craftsmen in Northern India. The creation of the Beat light is part of an ancient process that takes four days to complete and its beaten interior is re-purposed to refract and reflect a soft and warm luminosity.
Bearing the mark of its maker, Beat is a celebration of the beauty of things created by hand. Hand-raised, welded, beaten and finally skimmed on a lathe, the Beat shades retain hammer marks from their forming.
Perpetuating the skills of artisan craftsmen in Northern India, Beat’s origin is a re-purposed water vessel; hand-raised, welded, beaten and skimmed into functional silhouettes for the refraction of golden light.
