Moooi Horse Lamp

It does not matter how hard I try to wax lyrical about the Horse Floor Lamp by Moooi, I always find myself coming back to the fact that it is a life size horse with a lampshade on its head. I could tell you that is a lyrical 3d poem or a touch of nature in a fairytale style or that is a rejection of abstraction in that it draws inspiration from a living creature in order to elicit a strong emotional response. Or I could just tell you that it is a horse with a lampshade on its head. Somehow that feels like enough, I mean who wouldn’t want one? It’s a horse, with a lampshade for a hat. Oh come on, let’s not search for deeper meaning otherwise I will have to explain why Front, the designers, also make a rabbit, with a lampshade on its head and a pig with a tray on its back. Sometimes I think it is wise not to look for an explanation into something that is completely bonkers, especially when it is also completely brilliant. The Horse Floor Lamp then, just because it is.

Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren are members of the Swedish design group Front. Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they are all involved in the projects from initial ideas to the final product. Front's design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made from or about conventions within the design field. In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines. They have built a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, made a range of robotic furniture and another inspired by their fascination with magic. Hmmm, that’s all very well but it doesn’t answer the burning question ‘Who decided to make a full size plastic horse with a light on its head?’ And a pig with a tray on its back? Or the rabbit with its ears in a lampshade? Whoever you are I think I love you.


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.
