influenced by the heracleum plant, dutch designer bertjan pot‘s new LED lamp for dutch furniture brand moooi features ‘white leaves / lenses’ that ramify off ‘branches’, ending in a form that is both technical and natural in aesthetic. named ‘heracleum’, by using the technique of coating conductive layers in the design, the result is a very thin and delicate lamp – a design not possible with normal wire. a metal wire frame forms the branch-like design, while polycarbonate lenses act as the leaves which are illuminated by 63 LEDs in total. the heracleum leaves can be freely rotated and positioned as needed by moving them around their stems which come in nickel or copper finishes.

  • you know it’s an outstanding lamp design when it works just as good whether on or off. this one’s got everything: awesome spatial development, movement, tension, weight and weightlessness. cutting-edge technology turned into bold aesthetic statement.

  • It’s hard to find a good, beautiful lamp nowadays.
    This one is a good example that it’s still possible.
    Congratulations Bertjan, for this truly beautiful work.
