What a show stopper. The new Etch Light Web by Tom Dixon casts a lovely angular pattern when lit, showing off an elegant result of geometry applied to design. An irregular pentagon is repeated 60 times to create a total sphere approximately 65cm wide, and despite the size, the sphere remains lightweight at just over 2 pounds. It’s available for pre-order now through The Lollipop Shoppe in the UK, available September 2012.
