Product description

A mechanical luminary, cloud mast balances earth and air. The mast is crowned by a boom that supports a luminous canopy of clouds and a dangling fishing weight. As air currents shift, the clouds rise and fall like ships floating on gentle seas. The weight responds to each change, locked in a perpetual search for equilibrium. This natural rhythm creates an enthralling visual, and the comforting sense of lounging under a tree.


When illuminated, LEDs cast soft glow through the textile honeycomb shades. The suspension boom revolves around the mast, allowing light to move through a space with ease. As a floor supported luminary, cloud mast is ideal for temporary installations or within spaces where electrical wiring might disrupt the ceiling.
