The Iconic Eyes, designed by Bernhard Dessecker
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 of the Iconic Eyes is inspired by BMW’s iconic headlights. The first prototype dates back to 2013. Even though the design was not directly manufactured, it continued to draw attraction in the Bavarian region. It caught the Bavarian National Museum’s attention, who have purchased various editions of the design for their new foyer.
The official launch of the design will be held at the Bavarian National Museum on 13 March from 18 to 21 hours. Next to this the design will be celebrated at locations worldwide.
To mark this joyous moment a Q&A with Bernhard Dessecker, Dr. Frank Matthias Kammel, director of the Bavarian National Museum and Marcel Wanders will take place. Moderator will be Emre Onur, chief-editor of Licht. Join the worldwide and RSVP by clicking the button below.
See you there!
