Clouds offer a natual form of sunlight diffusion. Cloud Light diffuses the embedded light sources with it's frosted acrylic layers.
Cloud light is made from alternating layers of white oak plywood and frosted acrylic. The plywood layers are embedded with copper vinyl and small surface-mount diodes that illuminate the object. The layers of acrylic diffuse the light and create a translucent appearance.
