The cocoon is composed of silk that is made in glands within the body of the silkworm. In commercial silk farming, silk thread (usually totaling hundreds of meters from each cocoon) is spun off from the cocoons after they have been boiled, but these are totally unprocessed. The diffuser of the Midnight Moon is formed of a random configuration of these cocoons, each of which is attached to a hand soldered wire matrix. The process starts by attaching the silk cocoons to strands of wire. The first strands are then attached to a hand brushed stainless steel frame, and the layers slowly build up, checking the overall form of the piece along the way. In its natural state the cocoons are a soft white color, for the Midnight Moon a non-toxic fabric dye was used to create the ebony color.

Midnight Moon suspension provides diffused ambient illumination. Ships with white cloth cord set, white pan canopy, and j-box installation hardware. To clean silk cocoons - dusting or light vacuuming is recommended.
