Shaped with an openwork triangular mesh that also transports the electric current, Raimond steps up the wow factor in a striking larger rendition. Fashioned with stainless steel strips as a double-shell sphere, it's studded with tiny LED lights for a starry effect. Partially inspired by Buckminster Fuller's timeless geodesic dome, Moooi's fixture was developed over the course of nearly 40 years by self-taught designer Raimond Puts—and beguiles still with its surrounding warm white illumination.

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.
