When it comes to lighting, many designer seeks inspiration from the cloud. The Rain Cloud Lamps from DCS Corp are dramatic without being outrageous, elegant without being boring and luminous without being loud. Manufactured from a Japanese Paper Washi, the lamps have a very unique air to them which is further enhanced by the cutting-edge 3D shaping method. They put off subtle indirect light that offers a nice soothing ambiance. I think they become something more to look at than truly a source of illumination and offer an intriguing take on modern lighting. For more inspiration see our collection of funky and quirky designs.
