Overcast Light by Calen Knauf

Overcast Light is a minimalist light created by Vancouver-based designer Calen Knauf. The Overcast light consists of an aluminum cylindrical base and a paper shade. The shade is made from blended paper pulp that allows light to shine through mimicking the effect of the sun obscured by cloud cover. The LED light source is dimmed unconventionally via proximity to the shade, instead of using a dimmable driver. This is done by pulling the leather tab up or down along the side of the cylindrical base, moving the light source closer or further away from the shade.
