Tom Dixon Etch Web
ETCH WEB is a vast 60cm wide shade with an unusual open structure, designed to cast atmospheric angular shadows when lit. Another experiment in our long running exploration of mathematics and geometry, an irregular pentagon shape is repeated 60 times across the body to create a total sphere.
The enormous globe is made from stainless steel with an extreme-polished finish giving a remarkable shine and a jewel-like quality as external light is reflected off the mirrored surface.
Formed through a process of digital photo-acid etching, a halogen bulb is suspended within the centre of Etch Web to make it the ultimate shadow play pendant.
