Tom Dixon – Burst

April 28, 2021

Tom Dixon’s largest chandelier to date, Burst is made up of 12 perfectly spherical globe shades, which explode from a single point construction to create a spectacular chandelier.

Burst is mirrored and perfectly reflective during the day, and when switched on reveals a multiplicity of internal reflections from the integral LED.

Inspired by Tom Dixon’s interest in molecular structures and the forward-thinking space-age, Burst has a geometric configuration and chrome aesthetic. With its heroic proportions, Burst is intended for filling larger spaces and ceiling voids.

On 13 April, the studio launched Burst in Milan, on a part-virtual, part-real-life 24-hour adventure. This was its way of celebrating what would have been the first day of the 60th Salone del Mobile.

During #24Milan, Tom Dixon used digital trickery to inhabit an extraordinary space with its extraordinary piece – Burst at Chiesa San Nicolao della Flue – Milan’s historical Brutalist Church, built in 1968-1969.

“This minimal chandelier felt like the right fit for this extraordinary, beautiful church,” says Dixon.

Burst is available in copper and chrome finishes.
