Cloud installed at the family home
Electricity running through the cloud
The first meal

CBD recently completed the design and production of the Cloud pendant light for the family home of a private client.

Three hand spun mild steel hemispheres intersect to symbolise the family coming together at the dining room table.

After being spun the forms are expertly cut and welded together, then passivated in a zinc bath. The stormy industrial finish contrasts with the white gloss interior revealed as you sit at the table.

CBD is an Auckland, New Zealand based industrial design studio run by Clark Bardsley. Clark was formerly a senior designer for London studio PearsonLloyd.
