Etch Web is a vast 65cm wide shade with an unusual open structure, designed to cast atmospheric angular shadows when lit. An irregular pentagon shape is repeated 60 times across the body to create a total sphere. The enormous globe is astonishingly lightweight, weighing only 980 grams, with a correspondingly ethereal visual attitude. Formed from copper anodized aluminum through a process of digital photo-acid etching, an oversized LED bulb is suspended within the center of Etch Web to make it the ultimate shadow play pendant.

Windfall is known worldwide as the dynamic contemporary chandelier brand, which is re-defining the nature of crystal chandeliers. Dutch born Roel Haagmans and German Clarissa Dorn were already experienced chandelier designers for other companies when they set up Windfall together in Munich in 2004, to explore the contemporary potential of crystal chandeliers.

Windfall also supplies chandeliers for some of the world’s top luxury brands such as Roberto Cavalli, Cartier, and Mont Blanc.

The sheesha world seems to be at rise more and more, just when we hear about new smoking bans we hear about new sheesha places popping up. To divert the very “public” aspect of the sheesha, many brands have been designing exclusive and high end designer ones such as Porsche Design (posted previously), Aridiem  (earlier post as well), and now Étienne LeRoy.

Designed and manufactured by eukapis sàrl, a Lausanne based company, the Étienne LeRoy sheesha will be presented during the Big Boys Toys Show in Dubai in February 2012.

Swiss luxury goods are legendary. Not only have Swiss designers and artisans gained a well-deserved reputation for making the world’s most valued timepieces, they have excelled in other areas as well.

They chose the highest quality materials and have worked with the most highly skilled artisans to achieve their goals.
