bell suspension lamp

Design Marcel Wanders, 2012
Mouth blown glass, ceramic bow
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

The bell represents a very early and essential form of communication, generating a welcoming ring that brings people together for festivities and congregations. It has always been a fundamental icon for Marcel Wanders, who, after using its soft shapes for his Personal Editions, now extends it to the Moooi collection by introducing the Bell pendant and floor lamp. Although these two lamps differ in terms of format, materials and finishing, their bell-shaped shades are both decorated with a festive ceramic bow.

Marcel Wanders grew up in Boxtel, the Netherlands and graduated cum laude from the School of the Arts Arnhem in 1988. His fame started with the iconic Knotted Chair in 1996. He is now designing for the biggest European contemporary design manufacturers including Moooi of which he is also art director and co-owner. He works on architectural, interior design and consumer home appliances. His designs have been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions around the world.

The Bell suspension lamp is offered in two sizes and features a mouth-blown glass shade in five colors with a ceramic bow in your choice of gold plated or white glazed. The Bell lamps include a canopy matching the finish chosen for the ceramic bow.

Marcel Wanders

Marcel Wanders (1963) was born and raised in Boxtel, the Netherlands, and graduated cum laude from the Institute of the Arts Arnhem in 1988, after briefly attending the Design Academy Eindhoven. Wanders first drew international recognition for his 'Knotted Chair' produced by the Dutch design brand Droog, in 1996. The 'Knotted Chair' has since been acquired by the permanent collection of the MoMA. From his studio in Westerhuis, Amsterdam, he designs for manufacturers, such as: Alessi, B&B Italia, Bisazza, Poliform, Moroso, Flos, Boffi, Cappellini, Droog and Moooi.
Founded in 2001 by complementing personalities Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers, Moooi is named after the native Dutch word for “beautiful”. According to the company, “the third ‘o’ in the brand name stands for an extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.” In additon to Wanders’ work, Moooi has produced work from Bertjan Pot, Maarten Baas, Ross Lovegrove and Studio Job. Ultimately, Wanders is responsible for the overall design selection process.
