Award-winning lighting manufacturer LightArt recently unveiled the Ribbon Cloud Pendant — a lightweight, sculptural fixture representative of the soft, calming clouds seen adrift in Seattle’s skies. Incorporating biophilic design reminiscent of the natural environment, the Ribbon Cloud Pendant backlights layers of ribbon formed into a soft, glowing cloud, inspiring a sense of feeling in its viewers. With a matte finish and sophisticated look, the pendant is produced by encasing fabric between thin layers of Varia, parent company 3form’s formable material, to give the Ribbon Cloud Pendant its unique form and texture. The dimensionality of the fabric captures subtle luminous shadows, giving the fixtures their cloud-inspired look and name. The Ribbon Cloud Pendants are standard in white but are also available in 250+ custom color options.
Unlike larger chandeliers, Ribbon Cloud Pendants bring the look and feel of residential lighting to commercial spaces. The pendants highlight an ongoing theme in LightArt’s work — making functional pieces that dually serve as an art piece or focal point in a room. LightArt's design team hopes to go beyond serving the function of lighting — they aim to evoke emotion and create a striking design element in a space. The Ribbon Cloud Pendant does just that.
The production of LightArt’s Ribbon Cloud Pendants is similar to the company's traditional custom creations but paired back for replication and sustainability. Staying true to LightArt’s sustainability-focused product offerings, an improved technology enables the pendants to use 75% less material, while maintaining the same high-quality look and feel. Thinner material not only reduces environmental impact but leads to a more user-friendly product that is unconstrained by space-conscious environments. LightArt’s new fixtures can hang off a single junction box, allowing for more flexibility in price and scale and ease in installation. The Ribbon Cloud Pendants exemplify the company's ingenuity; improving lighting technologies and design to create high-performing, sustainable products.
