Tinkering light by Joost van Bleijswijk for Moooi

VDF products fair: Tinkering is a pendant light for Moooi by Dutch designer Joost van Bleijswijk, which comprises a cluster of black metal rods suspended from the ceiling by two cables.

The light sources are fixed to this steel skeleton, each encased in an arched shade that evokes the form of a security camera.

With the aim of capturing light in usual ways, the inside of the shades is coated in reflective brass and the LEDs are enclosed in ridged glass bulbs.

The lamp features a technology called Electosandwich, which was developed by Moooi and Marcel Wanders and allows for the LEDs to be powered through layers of conductive material embedded within the frame, rather than through a web of individual wires.

Together with the adjustable shades, this simple, lean frame allows the design to easily fit into different spaces, although its sprawling branches lend themselves best to long dining tables or counters.

The light is available in two sizes, Tinkering 85 and Tinkering 140, which are 85 and 140 centimetres long, respectively.
