eBay watch: A pair of Tom Dixon Jack Lights


It's not really an old design, but we have featured the Tom Dixon Jack Light on this site in the past. Why? Because it's every bit the modern-day space age classic. Which is why we are flagging up the auction for two of these lamps.

The Jack dates back to 1994 and is both award-winning and celebrated in the likes of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Each one is made of polyethylene and according to the seller, is around 73cm in size. But the unique feature here is that this is a 'stacking' light, so you can make it as big as you want, plug sockets permitting.

I've not seen a blue one, the more common colours are orange and white, So quite interesting in that respect too. A new one from Tom Dixon sells for around £310. But right now, two of these lamps are at £4.99 on eBay. That's a potential steal.
