Flock of Light by Studio Toer has been embraced and loved since its introduction in 2020. Now, a year later, Moooi introduces Flock of Light 31, a bigger Flock of Light.

Deriving from an imaginative art installation, Studio Toer’s inspiration behind their suspended lamp came from nature; the glowing sparks and swarms of fireflies that turn up at dusk. With Flock of Light, they captured that natural phenomenon in stillness to bring that sense of wonder indoors, into your home. Flock of Light 31, like sizes 11 and 21, is available worldwide.

“We took inspiration from a transient moment when a swarm of fireflies drifts. Inspired by nature and the way these little creatures move, we combined our knowledge of technology and ignited an idea. Together, we continued developing this concept, that with the freedom of play became the Flock of Light.” – Studio Toer

Nocturnal phenomenon
Twilight is the most magical moment b­etween day and night. A warm summer evening dotted with gentle sparks glowing around you, bringing a sense of wonder. Studio Toer captured this delicate moment with their design, Flock of Light, for Moooi. Mimicking the phenomenon of glowing swarms found in nature. Studio Toer’s first design for Moooi brings a bright, warm and poetic glow right after dark. A Flock of Light captured in stillness.

About Flock of Light
Flock of Light, by Studio Toer, transforms from a light and airy artistic design piece at daytime to a swarm of bright warm lights at night. A swarm captured in stillness. Flock of Light comes in three sizes: 11, 21, and 31, referring to the number of light sources. No matter how big your room or table, there’s a Flock of Light suitable to light it up. Flock of Light is available worldwide at the Moooi Brand Stores, Moooi dealers, and moooi.com.
