The Comet Lamp was designed from a simple, cardboard box transformed into a romantic, beneficent and sparkle — just like champagne — based on the universally attractive laws of geometry. The emblems of Veuve Clicquot and its five-branched star inspired Tom Dixon to reference the comet that was seen in the Champagne region of France in 1811, the year of an exceptional vintage and the first year of the “modern champagnes” that were pioneered by Veuve Clicquot. I’m a sucker for sparkly things designed by Tom Dixon.
