Serene Rain Lamps

Richard Clarkson Studio Continues to Be Inspired by Mother Nature

— June 10, 2015 — Art & Design
First it was a Cloud Lamp and now the Richard Clarkson Studio has gone and designed a Rain Lamp. A natural follow up to the original light fixture, it appears the team is loathe to leave behind their weather inspiration just yet. After all, the first one was received incredibly well. The Rain Lamp is just as stunning.

The Richard Clarkson Studio is nevertheless based around something even more abstract, "harmonious contradictions." It brings together water and electricity in a surprising way. Design Milk writes, "A large, clear globe is outfitted with a Micro-Peristaltic pump and an LED light bulb, with a pool of lighting chlorinated water at the bottom. The hidden pump circulates the water from the bottom to release drops around the bulb." The result is mesmerizing in a serene way.
Trend Themes
1. Weather-inspired Lamps - Designers are creating light fixtures that are inspired by natural weather phenomena, offering a unique and captivating lighting experience.
2. Harmonious Contradictions - Companies are combining seemingly contradictory elements to create harmonious and thought-provoking designs that challenge traditional notions.
3. Serenity Lighting - There is a growing trend of incorporating calming elements into lighting designs, promoting a sense of tranquility and relaxation in interior spaces.
Industry Implications

2. Interior Design - Interior designers can leverage the trend of harmonious contradictions to create innovative and visually striking lighting installations that challenge conventional design norms.
3. Hospitality - The hospitality industry can incorporate serenity lighting concepts in hotel rooms and public spaces to create a soothing and relaxing ambiance for guests.
