Frank Gehry Cloud Pendant Lamp
Made by Vitra Design Museum, Europe.
Gehry Cloud Lamp. Frank Gehry designed the Cloud Lamp for the Vitra Design Museum and Belux. The Cloud Pendant Lamp series was designed by the world famous architect Frank Gehry for Belux in Germany.
Gehry's Clouds are sculptural cloud-like contemporary modern lighting fixtures made in Germany. Frank Gehry has, for the first time, designed a collection of lamps for serial production.
The name "Cloud" evokes the poetic nature of these creations, which, according to their maker, should convey the feeling of freedom and eccentricity.
Each Gehry Cloud 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 Frank Gehry Cloud 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, Frank Gehry makes users into co-designers who can repeatedly change the shape of the Cloud Lamp if they so wish.
Made of flexible, tear-free, flame-resistant and aging resistant
multiply refined polyester material. This material is easy to clean and therefore ideal for Cloud.
