Design Bertjan Pot, 2001
Fiberglass soaked in epoxy resin, chromed steel pendant
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

The Random light is a resin drained yarn which is randomly coiled around an inflatable mold creating a magic translucent 3D fabric. Sounds simple but it took 3 years to develop. The Random light is the lighter way to occupy a space.

Bertjan Pot is a designer of mostly furniture and lighting. His methods are concentrated in his interest in skins of the structural and non-structural kind. He studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven. He considers theory as something to think about and something to discuss when not designing. "When it comes to designing, one should just design without being blocked by too many theories."

Random light is available in your choice of either black or white and can be specified with either an incandescent or as the Random II which includes a branded Moooi LED bulb (an etched and fully round bulb with minimal 'neck-length' to ensure a seamless connection to the chrome cap. Both version are available with either a 13 or 32 foot black cable length. The Random light has a small opening to help with replacing the light bulb.

Random Light II features:
- The round disk and metal rod are separated, which makes installing easier.
- The round disk is now a fixed position and branded with a Moooi logo.
- The elongated metal rod keeps the light bulb in the exact middle of the sphere.
- An improved unpacking-experience
- UL certified Random Lights have a new black or white canopy
- Random II includes a Moooi branded LED bulb.

Bertjan Pot

Bertjan Pot (b. 1975) of the Netherlands focuses in the material and production processes. He enjoys computer aesthetics and industrial production methods, but arrives at them without using them as a design tool. Almost all of his designs come from experiments in materials. His results often display merely the skin of his chosen material, creating translucence in his lighting and furniture, such as his popular Carbon Chair, Random Light, Random Chair, or Knitted lamp. In the case of the Random Light, a resin drained yarn is randomly coiled around and inflatable beach ball, creating a translucent 3D fabric. The ball is then deflated and extracted from a round opening in the lamp, leaving only the “skin.”
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.
