Renowned Dutch design house, Moooi, revealed three new pieces at Salone del Mobile 2019 in April: The BFF Sofa, The Party and the Meshmatics Chandelier Small.
Moooi has exhibited at the prestigious furniture show annually since its own 2001 inception.
The BFF Sofa is a modular sofa system designed by renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wanders. The sofa features a quilted appearance inspired by the Capitone technique, reminiscent of Chesterfield-style deep-buttoned upholstery – without the buttons. This modern reinterpretation has modules of various sizes that allow you to configure the sofa to suit your needs.
The Party is the world’s first singing chandelier with “enlightened harmonies” from the suspended family-of-five light, designed by Jos Kranen and Johannes Gille of Kranen/Gille. The Party is a family reunion of the design duo’s previous fixtures – Ted, Coco, Bert, Glenn and The Mayor.
The Meshmatics Chandelier Small by Rick Tegelaar complements the sophisticated Meshmatics Chandelier. Made with the same wire netting, the thin, flexible material is stretched and suspended in three layers. Ethereal, but also practical, the galvanised steel-and-brass ensemble reflects and diffuses the integrated LED light source, with the added benefit of keeping it cool.
