Watch our talk with designer Arihiro Miyake at Moooi's showroom in London

Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs spoke to Arihiro Miyake about how he realised his dream to become a designer in the first of a new series of talks with Dutch design brand Moooi.

Fairs and Miyake discussed how the Japanese designer made his name and the story behind his Coppélia light for Moooi in the talk, which is hosted at Moooi's showroom and brand store in London.

The event was part of a new collaboration between Dezeen and Moooi called Design Dreams, which explores how successful designers turned their dreams into reality through a series of talks and short films over the coming months.

The talk took place amongst an installation of suspended Coppélia lights and Moooi's new Jackson Chairs, arranged around a rug featuring a high-definition print of Moooi co-founder Marcel Wanders’ iris.

The installation was open at Moooi's showroom and brand store throughout London Design Festival, where visitors were also be able to capture a magnified image of their own iris.
