moooi

by Klaus Nienkamper II

moooi was one of the first brands that i started with when KLAUS was launched 17 years ago, the collection embodied movement of thought provoking, playful design, a different approach to an often overthought, too practical scene.  Playing with scale and with the advent of new materials available, moooi brought to the market a very distinctive style which also strengthened and continued the Dutch to be considered pioneers of design. 


 


 



Under the design direction of Marcel Wanders - moooi has year after year launched unique, fun and innovative pieces, often collaborating with the world of design’s much hyped players such as Studio Job, Maarten Baas to the more calculated designs of Raimond Puts and Bertjan Pot.  Under the Moooi umbrella, there seems to be something for everyone. We have worked with the collection throughout the years both residentially and for our contract business, the line continues to have so many different applications which is part of it’s great success, that seems to be the hallmark of most great brands.

 

 


"moooi as the brand seems to represent the fun side of design, some of the largest parties we have ever hosted at KLAUS were for moooi, one event for Marcel several years ago almost brought the house down, literally. moooi continues to be an important part of our identity at KLAUS, i hope never to lose that spirit as i feel if we where to give that up, what would we have left, after all - it’s just furniture.."

by Studio Job

 

Studio Job

Founded in 2000 by Nynke Tynagel and Job Smeets both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven now based in Antwerp and the Netherlands. They redefine the applied arts for the contemporary age.

Heracleum

by Bertjan Pot

 

 

Bertjan Pot


Bertjan Pot is a designer, probably best known for his Random Light (1999). The light started as a material experiment, which is basically the start of each product created by Studio Bertjan Pot. The outcome is usually an interior product showing a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors. Most experiments start quite impulsively by a certain curiosity for how things would function or how something would look. From there Bertjan takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push the boundaries a bit. The reward for each challenge is a new one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Raimond

by Raimond Puts

 

 

Raimond Puts

If there is some sort of thread that travels through the life of Raimond Puts (1937 - 2012) then it must be that of technical engineering. The machine designer he later became developed this talent already at a very early age when he played around with his meccano toy box. Technical science has fascinated him since. During his technical education he was trained in the craft of metalwork and owing to this a new world opened up for him.

About thirty years ago he began building models from cheap materials like strip–iron, mosquito nets & paper. He became attracted to the challenges of making geometric shapes & models. Over the years he has experimented with all sorts of shapes & materials. He searches for solutions to the practical problems he encounters with an angel-like patience & determination. Over the years his constructions have become more refined and by making use of the LED-technique, Raimond has found an extremely productive combination. In his work he searched for the ideal integration of beauty & functionality. In his designs he always searched for the essence & creates from minimal means, maximum results.

From 1979, Baas grew up in Burgh-Haamstede and Hemmen located in the southwest and central region of the Netherlands. After graduating from high school, he began studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1996.

Meshmatics

by Rick Tegelaar

 

 

 

Rick Tegelaar

Rick Tegelaar (Rotterdam, 1986) graduated with honours from the ArtEZ Arnhem product design department in 2011. Since then he works independently from his studio and workshop in Arnhem.

As a material-oriented designer, Rick’s work is characterized by the use of very uncommon materials, finding new beautifully shaped forms with an innovative approach.

Rick is interested in machinery and mechanical processes since childhood. This fascination for engineering, combined with his delicate sense of esthetics, are reflected in his designs, which shed a new light on undervalued materials and existing techniques.

Horse Lamp

by Front

 

Front Design

Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design group Front.

Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they are all involved in the projects from initial ideas to the final product.


Front's design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made of or about conventions within the design field.
In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines.


They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.
