The designer Hiromichi Konno, named this lamp collection after the Japanese word for clouds, kumo. The clouds that constantly changes shapes, lighting intensity, and directions of the light, has inspired him to a series of shades with each its own cloud story. Kumo is a collection of lighting designed with clouds as a motif to convey the calmness when looking up at the sky. The Kumo collection consists of three lamps designed after the shapes of the sky; Nami-gumo, Natsu-gumo, and Wata-gumo.
