45 Cloud-Inspired Innovations

From Customized Clouds to Cloud Decor & Architecture

— June 6, 2010 — Art & Design
Depending on their shape and color, clouds can signal perfect weather or a dangerous storm; these cloud-inspired innovations reflect that versatility.

From art installations, furniture and architecture that mimic the pleasant cumulus cloud to incredible up-close photography that captures inclement weather as it's happening, these cloud-inspired innovations will not disappoint. My favorite piece is the levitating cloud bed--talk about sleeping on cloud nine!

Implications - The levitating cloud bed would certainly make for a great conversation piece! The featured cloud innovations are more than just light and fluffy and feature some amazing items such as inflatable cloud umbrellas, dramatic weather lamps and billowy bubble chairs. If you have always dreamt of living in the sky, just by a few of these cloudy items.
