The Cloud Downspout Will Brighten Up Anyone's Day

The Cloud downspout is absolutely adorable. As its name suggests, it features a black cloud at the end of the pipe, giving the otherwise boring house fixture a cartoonish facelift. The cloud cleverly covers the bottom so that when the water gushes out, it looks like it is raining down on a small patch of the lawn (or pavement, depending on the house).

Created by Russian industrial designer Дмитрий Куляев for Art Lebedev studio, the Cloud downspout could easily be mistaken for a piece of street art. It has that playful aesthetic that pokes fun in an innocent and thought-provoking way. By lending new perspective to an everyday object, the Cloud downspout encourages creativity and imagination.

Also, despite its dark demeanor, the Cloud downspout will brighten up anyone's day--rain or no rain.
