LED Zeppelin | 2010


I really like the image of a lightweight light, it being almost nothing. Untouchable like light itself. My wish was to create an inflatable down lighter. LED Zeppelin is the big silver inflatable bag with transparent bottom. The silver foil reflects the light from the LED downwards; the transparent foil keeps the air (blown in by a small fan) in and lets the light shine through.

materials: aluminium, translucent foil, reflective foil, ventilator
dimensions: h:60 w:150 d:80 cm

Heracleum | 2010


‘Heracleum’ arrived at Moooi as a fantasy. I had the wish to light many LED-lights at the same time. I experimented with bundles of electricity wires that I shaped into a branch structure. During the development of the design it just seemed that too much soldering was required. Then Marcel Wanders had the ‘luminous’ idea to use his ELECTROSANDWICH® to make the design possible. The structure was coated with a plastic layer for isolation and on top of that a conductive layer to supply the LEDs with power. Using this technique it was possible to create a structure more slender than I had hoped for when I started the project. The technique and design are perfect for each other. ‘Heracleum’ is produced by Moooi.

materials: metal wire frame, polycarbonate lenses, ultra thin suspension wire, copper and nickel version
dimensions: h:65 :98 cm

A knitted lamp spin-off. Instead of a knit it was a circular net (used in the diving industry) this time that was soaked in resin and sucked around a cluster of balloons.

Rollercoaster | 2005


Here seen trough the shop window of Silvera in Paris. 135 bulbs, 30 meter of electric cable and glass fiber rod, 120 meter of black ribbon and about 30 black marbles create this chaotic piece. As if it were an exploded version of what once used to be a chandelier.

Old Fruit Versatile | 2004


This old fruit asked for a different treatment. It became the ‘Old Fruit Versatile’ (See old fruits, tops and bottoms). We made a small batch of old fruits.. but the squash season is over, unfortunately we are no longer able to deliver these lights.

Old Fruits, Tops and Bottoms | 2004


Cutting those particular old dried fruits in half and equipping both halves with a 25watt bulb make these simple lampshades. The inside has a white coating to reflect as much light as possible. The outside was coated black. They were produced in a limited edition and are sold per 2 (one top, and one bottom to make a perfect match). The squash season is over, unfortunately we are no longer able to deliver these lights.

Large Fold-up | 2002/2003

Tentlamp | 2001/2002


A single ten-meter long glass-fiber rod shapes the tentlamp. Although it is flirting with computer esthetics, it is totally handmade.  It was first shown during the furniture fair of Milan in 2002 but is not in production.
