Designed by Bertjan Pot and introduced in the Moooi collection in 2002, the Random Light has become a best seller right from the beginning. It transmit a feeling of simplicity, softness , lightness and a touch of magic in contemporary style. The lamp comes now in true light version now it’s energy consumption is 10-11Watt depending on the size of the globe.

The production process is a special story by itself: a resin drained yarn is randomly coiled around an inflatable beach ball creating a translucent 3D fabric. The beach ball is then deflated and extracted from a round opening in the lamp. At the end the skin becomes the product. Soft and magic."

fibreglass soaked in epoxy resin, chromed steel pendant. Maybe the chrome can make place for polished steel to make it even better for the environment?

You can see the strength of regulation; MOOOI till 2008 designed all lamps for incandescent bulbs now beauty meets common sense
