Designer calls in a few days ago, got this great idea for a chemically etched stainless steel lampshade.  Interesting thought, can you send us a drawing we answer.  A drawing, no you miss-understand, the idea is organic and evolving in my head.

Several conversations later and drawing is received for a 3 dimensional steel lampshade, etched from flat stainless steel sheet and formed using photo etched lines to enable the metal to bend by hand.

We were sceptical from the first conversation but the finished product looks amazing, it may appear in shops one day, watch this space…
