It is possible to produce a complex lamp out of simple materials that transports the warm soul of oak wood on a mechanic way, inside of a “Brave New World”. The Moooi Brave New World lamp realizes such kinds of ideals.
The design team Freshwest was inspired by the filigree and complex expression of Asian constructions for their floor lamp that reminds us of an oversized table lamp, made for Moooi. There was no construction plan for this lamp, as well as there wasn’t one for the models: every piece was added one by one, until the basic mechanic structure was decided. Since many small pieces make the whole image of the Brave New World lamp, the design team could concentrate on small details.
The Brave New World lamp by Moooi is made of numerous oak wood sticks and two counterweights of cast iron. The adjustment mechanism of the Moooi Brave New World should be made with two hands in order to keep the stability of it unchanged.
Moooi offers the Brave New World in two sizes (H 180 cm and H 270 cm).
