Inspired by the Heracleum plant [7] (aka Cow Parsnip), Moooi’s new chandelier branches out from a central core, and each stem ends in a set of shining LED “leaves.” The lamp’s structure is coated with conductive layers that allow it to carry a low-voltage (safe to touch) current to the LED leaves, eliminating the need for wires. Heracleum II comes in two different sizes and it makes a great new addition to MOOOI’s family of products.

MOOOI was founded back in 2001 by Casper Vissers and renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wanders [8]. Its name comes from the Dutch word “beautiful”, with an extra “O” added for an “extra value in terms of beauty and uniqueness”. MOOOI unveiled several brilliant luminaries [9] at this year’s ICFF, and Heracleum II caught our eye for its innovative technology and its organic forms [10].
