Design Bertjan Pot, 2010
Fiberglass with epoxy resin, powder coated steel
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

A floor lamp is one the most versatile lighting solutions to have in your home. Especially one that diffuses light in all directions, lighting up every dark corner. Twenty years later, the Random Light is as relevant and eye-catching as ever. Together with designer Bertjan Pot, Moooi updated the Random Light with better user-experience and the original idea as the key focus. The Random Light II is an aesthetically perfected and user-friendly design, with an enlarged life cycle.

The production process is a special story by itself: a resin drained yarn is randomly coiled around an inflatable beach ball creating a translucent 3D fabric. After deflating, the beach ball is extracted from the round opening in the design and the shade is left to dry. Because of how they're made, every Random Light is unique and never completely round.

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."

The Random Light II is a contemporary design that brings a feeling of simplicity and softness into any home. The Random Light family comes in black and white and is available as a suspension light and a floor lamp both in varied sizes. Random light includes 9.8' feet of black cord with a matching, semi-gloss powder-coat base. Includes in-line slide dimmer with on/off switch.

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.
