Moooi was founded by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers in 2001 and it is now one of the most famous design firm specializing in lighting, furniture and textile. Moooi is named after their native Dutch word for beautiful — with a third ‘o’ for extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.
The Dutch firm’s design style is always described as avant-garde, daring and playful, as you can see from their many iconic pieces such as the horse lamp, Heracleum, Random light … etc
For me, I have a soft spot for everything that comes in pastel colors, or a bow.
So it is no question that I find the Moooi Bell Lamp by Marcel Wander and Lolita Lamp so charming and adorable!
♥ Bell Lamp by Marcel Wander ♥
- Year of design: 2012
- Material: Mouth blown glass, ceramic bow
- Colour: Available with gold plated or white glazed ceramics
The bell represents a very early and essential form of communication, generating a welcoming ring that brings people together for festivities and congregations.
Different from all the exposed bulb lighting that are learning towards the style of raw and industrial, the Bell Lamp is refined, luxurious and pretty. I really lust for one for my dining room…
♥ Lolita lamp by Nika Zupanc ♥
- Year of design: 2008
- Material: Injection moulded ABS shade, polyurethane base
- Colour: White, black, grey & pink
Who is afraid of pink? My imagination chases female archetypes intentionally. Frivolous, even naive objects are my favorite victims. And when, during such a process, I manage to be creative in an evidently reserved way, I then touch the purest meaning of my work and frivolity becomes timeless elegance. Lolita is here to play with your emotions. She is here to break your everyday routine.
The Lolita family has also comes as table and floor lamp, imagine having this as reading light beside your wingback armchair, or a table lamp that “cutie-fy” your kid’s bedroom…
