May 14th was the date when internationally renown firm MOOOI, from The Netherlands, had the New York City opening of their newest showroom.
For more than ten years MOOOI has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs. The venture founded in 2001 by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers 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.
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 and make people of different ages, cultures and personalities fall in love with their homes.
In addition to Marcel Wanders’ designs, the Moooi portfolio contains a range of work from other nationally and internationally recognized designers. These include, amongst others, Jurgen Bey, Bertjan Pot, Maarten Baas, Jaime Hayon, Neri & Hu, Studio Job and Nika Zupanc. 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. This fusion brings the brand to focus on the production of iconic objects.
Being an enterprise from the Netherlands, MOOOI wouldn't be MOOOI without carrying the latest designs in Blue Delft ware.
This unexpected home vision brings to life a whole world of new ideas and inspiring complete Moooi settings to brighten up daily life with a touch of magic. They represent places where visions converge and where everyone can stop and feel comfortable within the perfect eclectic mix of culture & experiences that makes a home environment more beautiful and unique.
