Etch Light Web, Tom Dixon
The British design and manufacturing company formed this open-structured, spherical shade by repeating an irregular pentagon shape 60 times. With its centralized source—either an oversized LED lamp or a 28W clear halogen lamp—this pendant luminaire fills the room with abstract geometric shadows when illuminated. The 25.6-inch diameter copper-anodized aluminum shade weighs 2.2 pounds and hangs from a copper-coated steel ceiling canopy using a 98-inch-long black fabric cable.
