Product description

A vast 65cm shade with an unusal open structure, designed to cast atmospheric angular shadows when lit. Formed from copper anodised aluminium through a process of digital photo-acid etching.


A series of digitally manufactured shades made by employing an industrial process used to produce electronic products, the method allows for intricate detailed patterns to be cut directly onto the metal.

Much-needed addition to our ETCH collection, now available in 50cm. Inspired by the logic of pure mathematics, geodesic structures are made of digitally etched metal sheets. ETCH pendant has a detailed pattern which casts a mass of intricate shadows when lit.

New addition to the much-loved Etch family. A space filling shade made from photo-etched sheets of pure brass, 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. Etch Web in polished brass is astonishingly beautiful, with an ethereal visual attitude. A lamp is suspended within the centre to make it the ultimate shadow play pendant. Designed to add warmth and sophistication to the hallway, the hotel lobby or the dining room. Also available in stainless steel.
