As the dancer's movement shifts and flows, so Plié Plissé gracefully switches from ambient to downward lighting with a simple movement. Berlin-based Luke Bazle's kinetic design features an adjustable cellular-pleated shade in a honeycomb pattern, suspended from a coated-steel pendant. Unfolded, its radiance is soft and diffused, perfect for dining and lighting up a whole room. Fold the shade in and the lamp shines downwards and yields more intense illumination for work activities or reading.

It rhymes with “boy,” and a child’s wonder and uninhibited creative impulse is at the heart of this Amsterdam design house co-founded in 2001 by Netherlands design star Marcel Wanders. Then as now, Moooi’s aim is to crack conventions of modern design, providing a platform for the most experimental creatives around the world, including Studio Job, Bertjan Pot, Front and Neri&Hu, as well as creative director Wanders himself.
Some of Moooi’s beautifully eccentric pieces like the charred-wood Smoke Chair; the nearly life-size Horse Lamp; and Iconic Eyes, a dazzling hanging light made of BMW headlights, have become design icons. “We are not the kind of company that decides to produce a commercial chair and then contacts the right designer,” says Robin Bevers, who took the reins as CEO in 2015, after co-founder and Dutch design entrepreneur Casper Vissers stepped away. “It’s rather the other way round: they contact us.” From hotels to homes, the flights of fancy in furnishings, wallcoverings, rugs, lighting and décor from Moooi continue to marvel.
