Tadao Shimizu: Refreshing Cloud Silver Rain

"The structure of this lamp consists of a three dimensional washy- paper cloud shade which is supported by rows of thin metal rods that simulate the falling rain. The light may have different nuances inside these washy- paper cloud shades."

Unlike a cloud that is very light, airy, and changes in shape, this light is very still and structured. I like that it still emcompases the idea of a rain cloud but uses materials and solidity that are opposite from that of an actual cloud. I also like that the light isn't very bright, but bright enough to send a hue of colout onto the surrounding ground.
