Milan Design Week Preview: Etch Light Web by Tom Dixon

Launching as part of Luminosity for Milan Design Week at MOST, Etch Light Web by Tom Dixon, is a vast 65cm wide shade with an unusual open structure, designed to cast atmospheric angular shadows when lit. Etch Light Web is another experiment in their long running exploration of mathematics and geometry, an irregular pentagon shape is repeated 60 times across the body to create a total sphere. Through a process of digital photo-acid etching and formed from copper anodised aluminium, an oversized LED bulb is suspended within the centre of Etch Web to make it the ultimate shadow play pendant.
