Mega Chandelier (MILAN 2018 EDITION)
Phrases like "tour de force" often fall far short but Mega certainly deserves the kudos. A custom assemblage made of several of the singular beauties from the Moooi collection—Bell, Heracleum, Coppelia, Lolita, Raimond, Paper and Valentine—it's a glowing burst of creativity. A chandelier of one's dreams, this spectacular showstopper originally debuted in a special Milan exhibit but the perfect composition can be customized to grace any desired space. (Inquiries at A+R invited.)

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.
