Cloud is created by following an ordered system of parts much like a construction diagram found with toys or flat-pack furniture. Each individual unit of cloud is oriented randomly and connected to other similar units to fill a selected exterior volume. As the system of unit repetition is standard, any volume can be filled to produce the form of a chandelier or in the shape of a giraffe.
The qualities of the one-way mirrored material of the Cloud chandelier allow it to reflect the room's surroundings when dark, yet allow light both to escape and reflect inside when lit from within, creating an illusion where a single light bulb appears vastly more numerous and irradiating.
