Moooi launches new lights by Marcel Wanders and Joost van Bleijswijk at VDF

Dutch design brand Moooi has teamed up with Virtual Design Festival to launch new lights by Marcel Wanders and Joost van Bleijswijk at VDF products fair, which will be followed by a live talk about the products at 2:30pm UK time.

Marcel Wanders creative director Gabriele Chiave will speak about the studio's new Hubble Bubble light and van Bleijswijk will discuss his Tinkering light for the Dutch design brand in the talk later today, which will be moderated by Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.

Hubble Bubble comprises a series of glass spheres attached to a circular metal frame. The design aims to capture the childhood joy of blowing soap bubbles and is available with an iridescent, oil-like finish to the glass.

"Hubble Bubble captures those carefree youthful moments of blowing soap bubbles that aimlessly float away," said Gabriele Chiave, the creative director of Marcel Wanders

Van Bleijswijk's Tinkering light comprises a cluster of black metal rods suspended from the ceiling with lights encased in arched shades that evokes the form of security cameras.

Both of the new products make use of Moooi's Electrosandwich technology, which allows for the LEDs to be powered through layers of conductive material embedded within the frame, rather than through individual wires.
