Opal is a family of translucent globes using our own custom recipe of tinted white Opalescent polycarbonate. Semi translucent, they maintain an ethereal ghostliness in the daylight and at night form a perfectly illuminated sphere. Coupled with our new Tom Dixon LED, the Opal range emits a soft, diffused and flattering light. The softness of the lightbulb shape is achieved through a blow-moulded custom combination of opalescent plastic. This process works to achieve an organic form as well a delicate translucency.

More about Opal
The theme of Monochrome is carried through into Opal, where the most satisfying of pure shapes; the sphere, is manufactured with a precision thin wall. Working with our German engineering partners, we have designed our own recipe of opalescent polycarbonate, resulting in a satisfyingly ethereal orb.
We decided to remove the usual dangling lightbulb and replace it with our latest LED ring, making an extremely powerful illuminating device. Opal can be suspended from the ceiling in pendant form and fixed onto a carbon fibre pole as a floor lamp.
The archetypical silhouette of Opal allows for use in the most minimal of settings. The light’s strong constitution of shatter proof polymer makes it indestructible in contract use and the soft glow makes it desirable in domestic decoration.
