Iconic Eyes – Moooi

March 20, 2019

Moooi and Bernhard Dessecker are going full circle with their first design: The Iconic Eyes. Inspired by the headlights of BMW and recognisable by its oval shape with various lenses the ‘Iconic Eyes’ is a true eye-catcher. The lighting design launched worldwide on March 13 at the Bavarian National Museum in Munich. There, 11 Iconic Eyes, were permanently put on view. To celebrate this moment the general director of the museum, Dr. Frank Matthias Kammel, designer Bernhard Dessecker and Marcel Wanders, founder of Moooi, were in attendance for a special event, which took place during the Munich Creative Business Week.

The Iconic Eyes as produced by Moooi consists of numerous lenses and a constellation of LED lights. The lights are moulded in an oval shape and create an ambient glow enhanced by bright rings of light. The Iconic Eyes comes in two sizes; 85 and 161, named after the amount of lights in both sizes. The design comes with The Button, Moooi’s solution to counterfeits.
