About Cloud

Cloud lights were first launched in 2008 as part of the Spiral Islands installation of matching lights and settees. This was inspired by the clouds that David saw sitting over small islands all over the Pacific Ocean, which were used by Polynesian navigators to find islands from afar. The Cloud lights were made with frosted plastic but were later discontinued due to the negative environmental impact of the material. Cloud has now been given a second chance through a new material. The new version is made almost entirely of bamboo plywood applied in the same strips or rings. This allows light to shine through while offering a similar visual lightness as the former translucent plastic version.

Please note: Painted options of Cloud are generally cut to order with a lead time of up to 8 weeks. If you need your light urgently, please email us for current stock levels: info@davidtrubridge.com

Kitset Design

Kitset Design

Shipping as kitset vastly reduces the harmful effects of moving items around the globe. On average our kitset lights are 1/40th the size of an assembled one.

Warmth of Wood

How do I choose a light?

Not sure which light to buy? We can give you some advice about designs and sizes. Our lights are a larger than other options on the market, and are intended to be large features. Being thin plywood, they look much smaller once they are installed too and our clients often say they'd wished they'd gone slightly bigger. Read our full FAQ section by following the arrow below.
