nimbus.



Somebody over at Mosleymeetswilcox has a way with arts and crafts. They put some polystyrene balls together with some PETG plastic (nope, no idea what that is) and made "a seductive, lightweight material" that they then turned into the Nimbus.

shining. sunlight.
The Nimbus is a ceiling light that looks like a gentle, puffy cloud. Mosleymeetswilcox describesitthisway: "As light passes through the gaps between the polystyrene balls it is reminiscent of sunlight shining through a cloud." Sweet!

clouds. developing.
The Nimbus is still in development so not officially for sale, but Mosleymeetswilcox does have an e-mail address on their site where you can inquire about buying one.

PETG is a polyester related to PETE, but with some of the ethylene glycol replaced with 1,4-cyclohexanedimethanol. Apparently it has improved optical properties when compared to PETE?

Finally, a truly practical idea. If it wasn't so dark looking I'd say it was perfect. I like the "sunlight" thought. Little spots all over the room plus a nice ambient glow...cool.

Mosleymeetswilcox has some other interesting stuff on their website. I especially am attracted to the plastic table created by draping a melting sheet of plastic over upturned table legs!

That's very pretty and I agree that would look nice in a babies room.
