(Netherlands) – Moooi launches Kaipo Too lighting range.
After years of research, furniture and lighting brand Moooi presents new light fixture Kaipo Too, which radiates unity thanks to the sole use of glass in its design.
The Kaipo dates back to 2001 and was created out of glass and steel. The new Kaipo TOO still sports the archetype of a lamp base, which can be considered as the classic shape of a table lamp. The Kaipo TOO, as a successor to the first Kaipo, is available in two colours: Sepia and Pewter.
Designed by Edward van Vliet, with the Kaipo TOO the choice in design and preferred materials proved to be a challenge. Therefore, Moooi searched for the best and high-skilled craftsmen to make sure the Kaipo TOO came out exactly the way it is intended: strong, beautiful and delicate. The brand’s research took them to Venice, home of traditional glass blowing.
(1965) translates his vision, creativity and years of experience into unique (interior) concepts. Edward’s designs are easily recognizable by a mix of influences from traditional Western design, high-tech elements, and natural materials to the latest production techniques.
The Kaipo TOO is accompanied by Moooi’s digital proof of authenticity: The Button. This personal safe-keeper accompanies every Moooi design. The incorporated NFC- technology in The Button makes counterfeiting impossible and acts as proof of authenticity. By introducing The Button in their designs Moooi makes its supports in original design tangible.
The official and global launch of the Kaipo TOO takes place in London on 12 September, just ahead of London Design Festival.
