if… like us, you can find the beauty in the melancholy of rain, wonder in the rumble of distant thunder and childlike awe in slicing darts of lightning, you might enjoy this piece by Richard Clarkson. Cloud is a combined lamp and speaker system. Using motion sensors it detects any presence within the room and creates a unique lightning and thunder show in response to their movements. The system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can also stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device. Long-life, colour-changing Philips LED lamps within the cloud create the desired shudder of light – either in a stand-alone recreation of a stormy night, or as a visual accompaniment to a favourite tune.
