The designer in his "Cradle" chair.

Designer discovery: Richard Clark

Richard Clark first came across my radar when I saw a picture of his light fixture, The Cloud, on social media.

Made of hypoallergenic fiberfill, inside the cloud are speakers and a little computer, controlled through a small, wireless remote, programmable to interact with the space its in. How cool is that? But really, you have to see it in action.

Clarkson has founded his own studio that uses technology to influence his art and design. The Richard Clarkson Studios started as “an experimental product, lighting & furnitutre studio.”

And has come out with some beautiful work.


Clarkson also has a shop, where you can purchase the Cloud for your own home, or, if you’re feeling generous, my home. I have the perfect spot for a mini one.
