Le Nuage by Wout Wessemius
View Slideshow

Le Nuage is a suspended handmade light that resembles a cloud. Made from polyester wadding, each light is one of a kind with its own unique shape. Netherlands-based Wout Wessemius designed the piece to emit functional and ambient light with the use of energy-efficient bulbs. A plastic shell that diffuses light and creates variegated colors surrounds the light bulb to give the illusion that the sun is shining through the clouds.
