eCloud is a dynamic sculpture inspired by the volume and behavior of an idealized cloud. Clouds are ephemeral and in perpetual transformation, their abstract shapes are constantly teasing the mind of the observer to ‘see’ and interpret.

Its benefits include: sound privacy; air filtration and comfort; reduced stress; thermal regulation and a strong visual support of a community’s green strategies.
