Tom Dixon [1] unveiled a beautiful array of designs at his MOST exhibition [2] during Milan Design Week [3], and one of our favorites was his gorgeous golden Etch Light Web. An exploration of mathematics and geometry, this super lightweight pendant lamp packs flat to ship and projects amazing web-like shadows from its photo-acid etched shade.

Tom Dixon’s Etch Light Web measures 25 inches wide and only weighs 2 pounds, saving on shipping weight. Each lamp is made from a copper anodized aluminum shade treated with a digital photo-acid etching process. A bright LED bulb hangs in its center, and when the light is switched on the lamp casts a dancing web of shadows.
