Moooi was founded in 2001 by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers and is named after their native Dutch word for beautiful – the third ‘o’ in the brand name stands for an extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.
In addition to Marcel Wanders’ designs, the Moooi portfolio contains a range of work from other nationally and internationally recognized designers. The collections style is exclusive, daring, playful, exquisite and based on the belief that design is a question of love. Moooi takes pride in producing timeless objects of beauty which posses the uniqueness and character of antiques combined with the freshness of modern times.
With this unique and iconic mix of lighting, furniture and accessories, which outlast everyday interiors, Moooi creates interior environments decorated with an inspiring variety of patterns and colours to embrace any kind of space.
Black + Blum is an Anglo-Swiss partnership who joined forces in 1998 and based themselves in London, the European heart of design. As a design consultancy they advise companies on any creative aspect. This accumulating insight into different markets catalysed the decision to develop their own range of products.
Italian architect, Tiziana Redavid, got inspiration for her range of stainless steel jewelry when she visited a friend who manufactured industrial springs.
Taking samples, she viewed them with her fresh imagination, and was struck by the similarity with African ornamentation.
She uses African design for her inspiration. Molla is Italian for spring and she has taken this as her trade mark.
