Cloudy is Fabbian Illuminazione’s new blown-glass lamp created by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur. Normally, when we look at clouds, we seek organic shapes, similar to objects of living beings. In this case, the creative process has been reversed: this is a special object which, during its creation, revealed all its potential. “Cloudy is a paradox!This lamp has been created using extremely complex steel molds, which have given it an almost magical lightness, a glass cloud floating in the air”, explains young designer, Mathieu Lehanneur.
An object-lamp therefore which, from the pencil of the designer to its engineering and manufacture, has taken on the shape of a light and evanescent cloud. “By mixing together clear white glass with high-luminosity LEDs, Cloudy is a ray of sun after the rain!” When switched on, Cloudy reveals all its luminosity and evokes sunlight after the rain. A design lamp containing in itself a positive sign of hope and optimism. Cloudy, available as a suspension lamp or light fitting, features gradient white blown glass and die-cast aluminum structure. It is lit by high-power LED lamps. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Mathieu Lehanneur]
