Tom Dixon's design team have created OPAL. Opal is a family of translucent globes utilising a procedure that creates a fine tinted white opalescent polycarbonate. Opal is semi-translucent, and it maintains an ethereal ghostliness in the daytime and at night form a perfectly illuminated sphere.
Opal uses a newly developed LED; it emits a soft, diffused and flattering light. The softness of the light bulb shape is created by a blow-moulded custom combination of opalescent plastic. This process works to make an organic form as well as delicate transparency.
