CUMULUS is one of the first attempts by Kazunori Takeishi of MONOCIRCUS,at lighting design.
It is made in nylon plastic via 3D printing technology.
Inspired by traditional Japanese embient paper lamps, CUMULUS is createdin an abstract bulbous form that resembles clouds in the sky. It is composed of both organic yet geometrical elements that gives it a transient impression.
At MONOCIRCUS, through the creative process in the making of the various fashion accessories and small art objects, we realize the importance of depth in form which produces a variety of effects and impressions on people.
For this work, the design structure is created in such a way that its form, surface and texture produces different visual impact when viewed from near and far. Like clouds, its line-work disperse light in multiple ways and directions such that its edges seem to diffuse and become translucent when viewed from a distance.
Cumulus is available for purchase. For more information, please see this page.
