MOLO CLOUD SOFTLIGHT mobiles and pendants
Design by Todd MacAllen and Stephanie Forsythe.
cloud softlight creates an undulating overhead canopy of soft luminous forms. Group cloud mobiles (small, medium or large) or cloud pendants to create vast cloudscapes flowing in a unique topography, tailored to the individual space they are shaping. Taking inspiration from the wondrous mobile constructions of Alexander Calder, a mobile of luminous clouds can be suspended, moving with a gentle buoyancy in the air currents overhead. The mobile structure allow for a broad canopy of cloud forms, hung from a single point, to provide light and a sense of intimate enclosure. Alternately, individual pendants in four different sizes can be suspended. The hollow cloud forms are internally lit by LED light, making the sculptural three dimensional forms mysteriously radiant when viewed from any direction.
