Chandelier model ROUND in black with 12 x Smile 03
BEEM aims to reshape the world of lightbulbs through innovative combinations of pure form and the latest LED technology. Beem is a collaboration between the award winning industrial designer Samual Wilkinson and experienced lighting entrepreneurs Chris Stimson and Bujar Shkodra. The debut lamps Smile and Curli take advantage of the latest LED soft-filement technology expressed through Samuel Wilkinson’s fluid modern forms , hand-made craftmanship and devotion to detail. Beems mission is to create refined lighting solutions, so naturally we created a range of fixtures to complement our bulbs. Whether hung from the ceiling, placed on a table or fixed on the wall each fixture is designed to show off our bulbs in the best way!
At Beem we always try to use raw, honest materials as we do not like to compromise on quality and feel. Our glass tubes are made from the highest quality Borosilicate glass and the tubes have also been doubled sandblasted ( inside and outside) for optimum light translation. Our bulbs use the latest flexible LED filements. It is a combination of highly engineered micro leds over-moulded with a carefully coloured silicon. This provide 360 degree light output and precise colour temperature with a high CRI. One of our objectives was to use less plastic, so where possible we have used industrial ceramic for moulded parts. Stable at high temperatures and perfect for heat dissipation.
Due to the complexity of Curli’s never ending twisting form glass was not feasible so we have used the best substitute in frosted polycarbonate, strong with good light translation.
We have partnered with only the best LED technology suppliers.
This means that our combination of driver and led filement is unrivalled in the market for longevity!

Bulbs: The debut lamps – Smile and Curli – take advantage of the latest soft-filament LED technology, expressed through Samuel Wilkinson’s characteristically fluid modern forms, hand-made craftsmanship and our devotion to detail.
Fixtures: BEEM’s mission is create refined lighting solutions, so naturally we created a range of fixtures to complement our bulbs. Whether hung from the ceiling, placed on a table or fixed on thwall each fixture is designed to show off our bulbs in the best way.
Our glass tubes are made from the highest-quality Borosilicate glass, a type of glass that contains boron trioxide which allows for a very low coefficient of thermal expansion. This means it will not crack under extreme temperature changes like regular glass. The tubes have also been doubled sandblasted (inside and outside) for optimum light translation. Our bulbs use the latest flexible LED filaments. This innovative lighting technology is a combination of highly engineered micro LEDs over-moulded with a carefully coloured silicon. This provide 360 degree light output and precise colour temperature with a high CRI.

As well the light Smile as Curli to be used in combination with the special designed pendant set all in black : ceramic bulb holder, fabric cable and ceiling rose.
Smile is a distinct, graphic and modern glass bar of light fitted with a flexible filament attached to a ceramic base. Three shapes are available: a straight line, a U shape and a smile-like upward curve.
Curli is a swirl of light that takes its formal inspiration from the calligraphic flourish of the curlicue to create a continuous asymmetric coil that twists up and around the bulb holder.
All made by hand from the highest quality components available today, BEEM lamps are manufactured to maximise sustainability and engineered for longevity.
Using only best-quality materials, we are able to offer a minimum of 25,000 hours for all our lighting products.
All our products are fully hand assembled. At our dedicated assembly line in China we make sure all our workers receive an above-average living wage and work in good conditions.
