Moooi Paper Chandelier

Well yes of course it’s another light by Moooi. What gave it away? Is it the fact that it is made of paper? Or the size of a small hot air balloon? Or looks like it might come to life and chase you around the lounge? Moooi make things that no one else would dare to and more often than not they get away with it. The Paper Chandelier which comes in two sizes, large and extra large and is so called because it is a chandelier and really is made of paper, is part of a collection of monumental, experimental papier mache chandeliers and lights by Studio Job. They are designed to amuse and provoke in equal measure, job done I’d say, they are not easily ignored and not remotely practical but who cares? They are marvelous, redolent with nostalgia and whimsy, they overwhelm us with reminiscence, make us feel like children again with our hands deep in a bucket of torn up newspaper and paste, give us the sense that we could do anything, make anything, a five foot tall chandelier even.

Now based in Antwerp and the Netherlands Studio Job was founded in 1998 by Job Smeets. In 2000 he was joined by Nynke Tynagel also a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven. Their collaboration has created highly expressive, mainly one-off or limited edition works, from the outset. Often cast in bronze the physical potential and malleability of the materials they use is pushed to the hilt. Their approach is more in keeping with that of traditional guilds than anything industrial. Opulent, intricate and ironic, Studio Job combine an extraordinarily high level of craftsmanship with extreme ornamentation. They reference both the traditional and the topical, the organic and the artificial, employing iconography that is at once heraldic and cartoon-like, monumental and yet somehow primitive. Due to this combination of elements, Studio Job’s style has become synonymous with the term neo-gothic, placing it within an intellectual framework defined by the number of complex symbols and signifiers it conveys.


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.
