cloud softlight | pendant luminaires

cloud softlight is a paper light design concept which creates a canopy of soft, luminous forms. Available as individual pendants or suspended mobiles, cloud provides diffused light and a sense of intimate enclosure. Grouping pendants and mobiles together creates vast, sculptural skyscapes.

the airy, honeycomb shades are lit from within by energy-efficient LEDs. When dimmed, they conjure a stormy atmosphere, bringing a unique feeling to an installation or space. At full brightness, the luminaries provide gentle light that is perfect to work, read, eat and live by. cloud’s honeycomb structure also absorbs sound, subduing reflected noise within a space.

90+ CRI

Colour Rendering Index (CRI) measures the ability of a human-made light source to reproduce the colours of the object it illuminates accurately. With a maximum score of 100, CRI values that are 90 and above are considered excellent, while scores below 80 are generally considered poor. CRI is measured in relation to the colour temperature of the light source and its equivalent daylight spectrum. All molo lighting, including the cloud softlight collection, is made with 90+ CRI LEDs.

with no visible hot spots, cloud softlight transmits a gentle, dimmable light in all directions.


a lighting fixture that absorbs sound and reduces the reflected noise in a room, cloud luminaires are an elegant way to float acoustic panels overhead.

cloud softlight has a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) rating of 0.45, meaning that it absorbs 45% of the sound that comes in contact with it. Making cloud softlight an excellent way to improve the clarity of speech and provide an acoustically calm room.

plug-in / hardwire types

choose between plug-in or hardwire installation. Plug-in cloud pendants have an inline dimmer, plug into a standard wall outlet and work internationally with 100 – 240 VAC.

hardwire type also works internationally and requires a qualified electrician to connect cloud directly to a building’s electrical wiring. Hardwire cloud comes with a remote driver that is compatible with 0–10V Dimming systems. DALI-compatible drivers available on request.

the translucent white shades of cloud softlight have a visually delicate appearance reminiscent of Japanese washi paper, and the pattern of its fine translucent fibres comes to life when illuminated. The shades are made from recyclable, non-woven polyethylene (HDPE). This non-woven textile is anti-static (repels dust), tear-resistant and water-resistant. Made to order for molo, our textile is a bright white that has an impressive colour consistency over time. It is easy to maintain, can be dusted and vacuumed, and, if necessary, can be wiped clean with a soft cloth, water and liquid dish soap.
