These distorted spherical MELT pendants made from hot blown glass create extraordinary optical effects.

Created in collaboration between self-taught British designer Tom Dixon and design collective FRONT, the pendants launched at this year's Milan Design Week.

The distorted globes create a mesmerizing melting hot blown glass effect. Looking like chunks of melting lava, they turn translucent when the light is on and produce a mirror finish during the day, emitting a “mildly hallucinogenic” light. This is achieved through experimentation with vacuum metallization which provides high quality metallic finishes.

Melt lamps are available in two-sized copper, chrome and gold versions and can be combined to create interesting and colorful clusters that act as striking centerpieces for any room. The collection will be available for purchase at Milan and the designer announced that shipping services now include the United States.
