Richard Clarkson Studio and Crealev present: Making Weather, a levitating cloud

project. The project is a collaboration between the two companies – merging the

innovative levitation technology developed by Crealev with the form and function of

the Cloud product of Richard Clarkson Studio.


Making Weather is the name of the collaboration effort to create a floating cloud.

While the collaboration is ongoing the first prototype has recently been released; A

mid-size cloud which floats above a reflective oval base. Embedded into both the

base and the Cloud are magnetic components that allow the cloud to float 1-2 inches

off the base. While the base itself must remain plugged in a rechargeable lithium ion

battery powers the Cloud and enables a totally wireless and unobstructed levitation

while in use. With full rotational movement and slight vertical bobbing of the cloud a

more realistic atmospheric experience is possible. Similar to the original Smart Cloud

this floating cloud also has an inbuilt Bluetooth speaker and sound reactive LED

lights. With the hopes that this will soon become available as a commercial product

both companies will continue innovate with the exciting technology.




Crealev is a young, dynamic and hands-on company. The Crealev team consists of

engineers and designers, an enthusiastic and flexible team ready to create product

and projects that will amaze everyone.

We have a wide skill-set and ever increasing experience with magnetic levitation,

product design and display products. We love to create products ourselves. We love

to collaborate. Crealev can share knowledge, ideas and experience during the

concept or prototype phase of your levitation product. We are happy to participate in

brainstorming sessions during the concept phase and to offer fresh thinking on your




Richard Clarkson Studio.
