Moooi Dear Ingo White

Dear Ingo is a light of exceptional proportion, function and ambition. Designed by Ron Gilad for Dutch design company Moooi it is part light, part love letter and part art installation. The Ingo in its name refers to Ingo Maurer, certainly one of the most singular and talented lighting designers the world has ever seen. But Dear Ingo is not some fawning homage, it is an act of respect but also one of intent, a demonstration of how to walk the delicious line between the abstract and the functional. This is where Ron Gilad’s particular talents lie, the appropriation and mash up of recognisable objects to create new playful hybrids. The proof of his success, if proof were needed, is that Dear Ingo now forms part of the permanent collection of The Art Institute of Chicago and has been widely lauded as a modern classic. Made from powder coated steel the light consists of sixteen task lamps all of which can be positioned and directed individually. In either black or white the Dear Ingo is a pure example of how to add the extra to ordinary.

Ron Gilad was born in 1972 in Tel-Aviv and now lives and works in New York City. Ron has a love of the combined, the appropriated and builds elaborate hybrid objects that merge the material with aesthetic play. These objects are by definition unique and sit on the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional. His works attempt to explain or interpret the relationship between the object and its function, questioning our perceptions about the physical and the mechanical. Varying from one-off commissions to limited editions and production pieces, the works have no expiration date and can be found in both public and private collections worldwide. Gilad asks unceasing questions in a 3 dimensional form and fabricates answers that create an arena for fertile doubt. ‘What is it for?’ Is almost always immediately followed by ‘Ah, I see’. Metaphorically, Gilad is a linguist, creating his own language. He learns the origins of words and develops new synonyms.


For more than fifteen years Moooi has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs. The venture founded in 2001 by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers is named after the Dutch word for beautiful but with an extra ‘O’ for added loveliness, uniqueness and value. The core strengths of both men continue to complement each other perfectly, Marcel, the obstinate, passionate designer with a nose for business, and Casper, the driven marketeer with a keen eye for design. In addition to work by Wanders the Moooi portfolio contains work from other internationally recognised designers. The style of the collection is exclusive, daring, playful, exquisite and based on the belief that design is a question of love. Moooi takes pride in producing timeless objects of beauty which posses the rare character of antiques combined with the freshness of modern times. This fusion has created a brand that believes it’s purpose is the design and production of contemporary icons.
