Overcast Light

Updated on

March 30, 2021

The overcast light from Calen Knauf is a simple light drawing its design inspiration from the clouds above. The light is made from a simple aluminum base, and the shade is made from a blended pulp paper which mimics the effects of the sun through cloud cover when light is passed through.

Instead of a traditional dimmer switch, the light is controlled by a simple leather tab, which controls how close or far the light source is from the shade.
