Concept

Batch produced, Etch demonstrates Future Industry, where small numbers of high-tech products can be produced in greatly reduced time scales. Etch launches as part of Flash Factory, at the Tom Dixon stand in Salone Del Mobile, Milan. The collection includes this digitally manufactured candle- holder etched in brass. Made by employing an industrial process used to produce electronic products, including circuit boards, the method allows for intricate detailed patterns to be cut directly onto the metal. The geodesic structures are made up of sections of 0.4mm etched metal sheets inspired by the logic of pure mathematics. The detailed pattern creates a mass of intricate shadows when lit.
