Floating Cloud by Richard Clarkson
OK, let’s be real here… as far as cool gizmos go, it doesn’t get much cooler than an indoor floating cloud! Designed as a collaboration between the Richard Clarkson Studio and the innovative Crealev company, the Floating Cloud is currently available via the Richard Clarkson website here, and what a sight it is to behold!
With real-life (no illusion) levitation of approximately 2.75 inches (70mm), the Floating Cloud comes with an embedded rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and a design which cleverly utilizes the power of embedded magnets to allow for an impressive floating effect.
This beautiful design piece looks great as a shelf centerpiece and the cloud has been designed for permanent levitation and thus, it includes the ability to be charged while floating.
During the design phase, the designers decided that integrated speakers would only weigh down the device and reduce the jaw-dropping levitation effect.
As a result, it was decided that the cloud’s design would allow for your own home speaker system to do its job by playing the music, and the cloud would instead react to the music.
With the incorporation of RGB LEDS into the design, the Floating Cloud reacts to the sound of your music and you’ll be able to watch in awe as your cloud lights up and flashes to the music!
Art Meets Future
In terms of wow-factor, the Floating Cloud is a truly unique room centerpiece that cleverly and successfully mixes classic, artistic beauty with modern, futuristic minimalism.
The Floating Cloud is sized around 12″ x 11″ x 8″ but as each cloud is hand-made and unique in size, the exact dimensions may vary. The product is also made from Hypoallergenic polyester fiber to mitigate allergy risks and the cloud comes with a hidden on/off switch integrated into its design.
Currently available for $4,620.00 and with free shipping inside the continental United States, the Floating Cloud makes for a truly stunning room centerpiece and the synergy between simple art and futuristic design makes this product particularly stand out.
