Tom Dixon’s New Lamp Makes Good Use of Pentagons

Image via FastCo DesignBritish Designer Tom Dixon is familiar to those who like their light fixtures suspended and sleek, but his latest production makes a groundbreaking addition to his product line by intricately networking 60 irregular pentagons. The Etch Web, as it’s called, opens and complicates the ideas first generated by the Etch Light Brass—and to good effect. According to a recent FastCo Design post, the Etch Web is made “with an acid-etching process similar to that used in manufacturing circuit boards.” The aluminum lamp measures out to 26 inches but weighs only two pounds. And if you want one, you’ll have to wait a little longer. The product is not yet for sale.
