On 13 March we presented and launched the Iconic Eyes, designed by Bernhard Dessecker. A breath-taking lighting design in the collection of Moooi that will emphasize the grandeur of any room, space, entrance or foyer.
The release of the Iconic Eyes is another example of how Moooi makes designer dreams come true. The design of the Iconic Eyes is inspired by BMW’s iconic headlights. The first prototype dates back to 2013. It was designed for the Foyer of the Bavarian National Museum. Even though the design was not directly manufactured -only a prototype was built and installed-, it continued to draw attraction in the Bavarian region. Six years later, Moooi realized the full potential of the design, started the development and eventually gave The Iconic Eyes an Iconic launch in the space where it all began; The Bavarian National Museum in München.
The Iconic Eyes as produced by Moooi consists of numerous lenses and a constellation of LED lights. The lights are moulded in an oval shape and create an ambient glow enhanced by bright rings of light. The Iconic Eyes comes in two sizes; 85 and 161, named after the number of lights in both sizes. The design comes with The Button, Moooi's solution to counterfeits.
