During the ICFF Design Porteur was hunting out the most outstanding designs shown at the Javits Center and we have selected the following:
Etch Shade by Tom Dixon
The most delicate pierced metal sheet, folded into sophisticated geometric solids. The etch lights employ an industrial process that is most often used to produce intricate electronic products, such as circuit boards and electrical components. This allows extremely intricate, even microscopically detailed patterns to be cut directly into the metal. The geometric is not only decorative, it also allows the extremely thin metal sheet to cross-brace itself in a structural manner , making a rigid exoskeleton look like a shell.
Etch Tower by Tom Dixon
The formal simplicity of the shapes makes a light source that, despite its radical newness, has a heritage because of its resemblance to Islamic architecture, mineral structures or Victorian lighting fixtures, making these objects suitable for all types of interiors.
Bulb by Tom Dixon
An energy efficient oversized light bulb designed in reaction to the phasing-out of the incandescent bulb and the unattractive aesthetic of most CFL replacements. It is a CFL light bulb that can be used without shade.
This bulb can be used by itself or as part of the three -parts chandelier.
