    Co-operating closely with the BELUX company, Frank O. Gehry has, for the first time, designed a collection of lamps for serial production. The name alone – CLOUD – evokes the poetic nature of these creations, which, according to their maker, should convey ‘the feeling of freedom and eccentricity’. The lamps are available in various sizes and models, such as hanging, standing, floor and table lamps. Each lamp has a voluminous yet delicate paper-like shade, in the centre of which is the invisible light source. With its irregular sculptural shape, marked by countless folds, crimps, bulges and dents, it suggests a fleecy CLOUD and then again a large, soft snowball. Looked at more closely, the lampshade consists of several interlinked cup-like elements. Each lamp has an individual note in spite of all lamps having the same structure and the same predetermined shape. The idea is that the fold structure of the shade, which is shaped more or less by accident during production, can be changed by bulging it out or pressing it in. In doing so, Gehry makes users into co-designers who can repeatedly change the shape of the lamp if they so wish. Gehry wants CLOUD to be seen as a homage to Isamo Noguchi. CLOUD has the same sculptural quality as Noguchi’s famous paper Akari lamps. Gehry also shares with Noguchi a continued interest in paper, a material he has worked with intensively in his furniture projects. It came as no surprise, therefore, that the first prototype of the new lamp was made of complexly deformed packing paper cups, stapled together. However, for lighting and safety reasons, an alternative material was needed to produce the lamp in series. After comprehensive tests, a multiply refined polyester material was developed, which feels and looks like strong fibrous paper. Flexible, tear-free, flame-resistant and aging resistant, this material is easy to clean and therefore ideal for CLOUD.

    YES! I'm so glad to have found this. While in San Francisco my domestic life partner and I went to the newly opened bastian of shopping the Westfield Shopping Center on Market and we saw these lights at the Sweet Beard Papa's (cream puffer extraordinaire) counter in the food court. They were so appropriate because they looked like cream puffs!

    I wish all lamps in my office were replaced by these fluffy looking cloud-like lamps. Maybe then, I would be a happier worker.

    I love the puffy organic texture of this pendant light. I want to be surrounded by these. Match them with the rock pillows and it's a whole new take on the "bring the outdoors in" motif of contemporary interior design. Without being kitchy or overly literal.
