non random light

Design Bertjan Pot, 2007
Fiberglass, epoxy resin, powder-coated aluminum
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

Old ladies call them neatly coiled balls of yarn, Kids talk about soap bubbles hanging from light bulbs, Some say they are there to light up Arabian nights, Moooi says they're Non Random Lights.

When Moooi transferred the production of the Random Light from manual to machine one of the problems they encountered was making it 'random'. When that problem was solved they decided to use the machines preference to make non-random structures and after a while the Non-Random Light was born. Not only is the structure non-random but where the random Light throws it's light around the whole room, the non-Random Light lights mostly downwards due to the small reflector on top that also hides most of the light bulb.

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."

Non-Random light includes a steel chrome canopy and is available in two sizes in your choice of either black or white.

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.
