~ Tom Dixon, Etch Web Pendant

Not all that long ago I added a post about one of my favourite light fittings by Tom Dixon, the Etch light shade. The question was posed - could I ask for more - I guess I could, here comes the follow up with the Etch Web pendant. Less about perforation and more about geometric shapes, an irregular pentagon shape is repeated 60 times across the body to create a total sphere, 65cm W.
Formed from copper anodised aluminium through a process of digital photo-acid etching, an oversized LED bulb is suspended within the centre of Etch Web. Fantastic shadows cast by the pendant.
