Etch Web

Created for the launch of the Audi A8 in Miami 2009, Etch Web was designed to be voluminous, lightweight and transparent. The intricate metalwork creates a dense and decorative series of shadows on surrounding surfaces reminiscent of natural light filtered through the leafy screen of a forest canopy.

Designed for the digital age; conceived on a computer and manufactured through the digital-dependent technique of precision acid photo-etching.

More about Etch Web

Etch Web uses sophisticated Digital Acid Etching methods in a factory that specializes in making extra-fine holes in metal coffee filters, and for speaker grills. We however use the technique to filter light, not coffee or sound. Large sheets of stainless steel or brass are first printed with an acid resistant pattern, then dipped into an acid bath which dissolves the unexposed metal leaving behind our components and the instantly recognizable intricate patterns that will then form our lampshade. The finely pierced flat metal sheets are assembled like Victorian tin toys using folded tabs and slots to create the final geodesic structure.
