An award-winning pendant light with its head in the clouds
Declared Lamp of the Year 2014 at Elle Decoration’s Swedish Design Awards, Cloud is a traditional globe lamp with a twist. Crafted by Swedish designer Jonas Wagell for Bsweden, Cloud takes a standard pendant light and adds a graduated red tint. The soft hint of color, which is romantically reminiscent of of a sunrise on snowy clouds, creates an asymmetry and serves as a filter that forces the light to be concentrated downward.
Cloud’s curvaceous forms also deviate from the uniform globe and contribute to the impression of irregularity when viewed from different angles, which provides an element of intrigue to an otherwise simple light.
We caught up with Wagell at the Stockholm Furniture Fair where he told us more about his award-winning creation:
