Your own Thundercloud

"Cloud" is the latest creation of multidisciplinary designer Richard Clarkson. An interactive light and speaker system that simulates a thunderstorm in your home (except rainfall of course ;) ). Perfect for those who enjoy rainy days.

Clarkson himself explains his creation:

"The Cloud is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud in both appearance and entertainment. Using motion sensors the cloud detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement. The system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device. Using color-changing lights the cloud is able to adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. The cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode."

Watch the video to see how it works or visit the shop.

Perfect Hand-cut

Bovey Lee is a cut paper artist who creates impressive scenes on large sheets of Chinese rice paper by cutting out tiniest pieces of the near weightless material.

Lee’s artworks are characterized by scenes of plants, roads, people, and architecture with an impressive array of patterns reminding us of leaves or cells seen under a microscope. The paper artworks are so fragile that they need to be mounted against silk before they are put on display.

Lee is a Pittburgh based, Hong Kong born artist who is practicing Chinese calligraphy since the age of ten, she studied painting and drawing in my formative years and completed her BA degree in Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Awkward Greeting Cards

Sometimes you just don’t know what to say. Usually this is really awkward. Illustrator and designer Emily McDowell created painfully honest text based greeting cards to give you the right words to say in highly emotional situations. She designed motives for different occasions such as birthday, mothersday or a simple letter for your sweetheart.

“My work reflects our shared human experience, in all its different, messy forms, and I feel most satisfied when something I made helps somebody feel like someone else out there gets them,”says McDowell.

McDowellis is a former advertising art director, writer and creative director who returned to her roots by drawing and creating ad-unrelated stories. After putting her one whimsical “Awkward Valentine card” on Etsy, she met with unexpected viral success, eventually making an entire series of Awkward Cards. You can get your card for $4.50 from her website
