Born in 1930, he studied architecture at the University of Southern California and studied City Planning at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He developed projects of private and public city planning in America, Japan. In Europe, he has recently been awarded the Pritsker Architecture Prize in 1989 and the Wolf Prize in Art in 1992. His projects have been published all over the world. The most important retrospective, "The Architecture of Frank O. Gehry" has been organized by the Walker Art Center in 1986 and has travelled the major American museums.Designed by Frank Gehry for Vitra, the voluminous but delicate, paper-like lampshade consists of several linked shell elements that can be altered simply by bulging them or pressing them in. It features a polyester fleece that has been treated several times and which looks and feels like strong, slightly fibrous paper. The fiberlike polyester membrane comes as flat sheets that are snapped together. Pliable, tear-proof and easy to clean, this material is the ideal choice for Cloud. You can assume co-designer responsibilities as you can alter the shape of the lamp for your aesthetic sense.

Cloud Lamp by Frank Gehry
I have been thinking of purchasing this lamp for a long time, but I was concerned about money...I looked for a while for another alternative lighting fixture, but I could find a better looking one. I love the organic and soft shape. I put it in my bedroom and it looks great. Yes, I spent some $$$ but I LOVE it :)

We hung this in our small dining room with a dimmer switch (this really makes the light -- having it on with just a tiny bit of light is gorgeous). It's incredibly easy to install, and I was able to turn it and find the "face" i wanted to see most - quite adjustable.
