Tom Dixon Etch

Etch launched as part of Flash Factory, at the Tom Dixon stand in Salone Del Mobile, Milan 2010. The digitally manufactured collection includes this pendant light etched from brass as well as a candle holder. 

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 cast a mass of intricate shadows when lit.
Batch produced, Etch demonstrates Future Industry, where small numbers of high-tech products can be produced in greatly reduced time scales.

Yours in inspiring design,
Créma Design
