cloud softlight mobile
cloud creates an undulating overhead canopy of soft luminous forms. Vast cloudscapes give sculptural shape to a space by grouping cloud clusters to flow in a unique topography. The hollow honeycomb structures are internally lit by LED, making the three-dimensional forms mysteriously radiant when viewed from any direction.
