You won’t be able to resist Moooi’s NomNom Light by Odin Visser, to be launched 6 December. With the NomNom Light the lifestyle brand adds a contemporary and versatile suspension light to their collection.

The simplicity of two straight lines and a sphere creates the playful illusion of two chopsticks holding something delicious. But not all is what it seems. The inspiration for the NomNom Light came not from being peckish, but from the need to create something playful yet elegant. A design that would excel in simple functionality but remained intriguing. The accessibly priced NomNom Light comes in six colours, Nori, Wasabi, Ginger, Blossom, Indigo, and Ruby, and will be available worldwide from 6 December at Moooi.com, Moooi Brand Stores, and Moooi dealers.

Moooi presents NomNom… Simply irresistible

We. Can. Not. Resist. the NomNom Light by Odin Visser! The simplicity of two straight lines and a sphere creates the playful illusion of two chopsticks holding something delicious. Is it a ball of rice? A marshmallow? A dumpling? Upon looking closer, you can see that the sides of the suspensions light’s glass sphere are gently squeezed, completing the impression of chopsticks holding something yummy. Whatever it is, NomNom’s playful character puts a smile on your face and a tingle in your belly! The NomNom Light is simply irresistible, and with six colours to choose from, there’s a flavour for everyone!

Playful minimalism

The inspiration for the NomNom Light did not start out with the need for a snack. This modestly sized suspension light is the perfect example of the art of omission while remaining distinctive. It results from wanting to create something that catches the eye, without unnecessary detailing. The designer of the NomNom Light, Odin Visser, calls it playful minimalism. Two straight lines and a sphere. Those were the only three elements he needed to create an intriguing yet simple suspension light. This makes the NomNom Light the perfect lighting object in a corner or above a small table. But when clustered or in a row, NomNom is perfect for a big space or above your dining table.

NomNom is about playful minimalism with unexpected logic. The silhouette is simple, but it has an unexpected playfulness to it that keeps you looking. – Odin Visser

Full control of the NomNom Light with the Wireless Wall Switch

Every moment of the day or even your mood requires specific lighting. With Moooi’s Wireless Wall Switch, you’ll have full control over your NomNom Light with one touch. There’s no need to change your home’s wiring. The Wireless Wall Switch component needs no electricity (excluding the 110V version). It works with an energy harvesting technique, which means when you use it; it charges itself. The full dimming range provides bright light perfect for when you’re working or cooking. And when night falls, you can dim your own NomNom Light to match the moment with one simple touch. The Wireless Wall Switch comes in White and Anthracite and is available separately.

Also available: Mixing Pixels

Also available from 6 December is Mixing Pixels by Ruben de Haas. Mixing Pixels is a collection of carpets that result from de Haas’ playful curiosity for colours and discovering new techniques. Each design is an artistic reinterpretation of existing carpets in the Moooi collection, but ‘mixed’ into another shape and composition. De Haas chose carpets made by designers he admires: Studio Job, Front, Kit Miles, Emma Larsson, Jae Yong Kim, Sjoerd Vroonland, Moooi, and Claire Vos. The collection comprises 12 designs in lively colours and abstract shapes.
