floating cloud speaker creates a levitating lightning storm in your home

 

richard clarkson studio and crealev have collaborated to create a levitating storm cloud that doubles as a bluetooth speaker. the cumulus-shaped puff autonomously hovers above a reflective oval base, which is embedded with magnetic components that allow the cloud to float 1-2 inches from its surface. while the base itself must remain plugged in, a rechargeable lithium ion battery powers the cloud and enables a completely wireless and unobstructed levitation while in use.

‘making weather’ blends crealev’s innovative levitation technology with the form and function of richard clarkson’s cloud product, creating an in-home device that is both practical and playful. the inbuilt bluetooth speaker and sound reactive LED lights relay a realistic atmospheric experience akin to a storm, with colored luminescence generating lightning-like flickers as music is played. rotating fully above the base and bobbing vertically, the floating cloud speaker is both a surreal and sensible addition to the home.
