Tom Dixon's Fat Spot is a rather intriguing product, not so much for its straight and simple shape, neither for its functionality that appears immediately evident from the formal choice.

What gives this lamp extra character is the brilliant choice of material and finish. Made of internally ribbed polycarbonate, the physical texture blends with the natural reflections of the metalised copper finish, resulting in a deep three-dimensional effect that donates the product with an extra layer and brings a beautiful distorted reflection of the environment.

    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
