Muuto Under The Bell Small

Under The Bell is a marvellous light designed by Iskos-Berlin for Muuto. It is made from recycled PET plastic which has been molded into a dome and then covered in a synthetic felt inside and out. Its form is heavily rippled, giving it a wonderful permanence and strength of character and emulating corrugated iron. With its felted surface it can help to absorb noise and improve the acoustics of almost any space but it does this lightly and never feels overbearing. Available with a pale grey, grey or black exterior, Under The Bell 55cm gives off a soft pleasing down illumination, holding light within its white interior and throwing the outer shell into relief. An unusual and ceaselessly pleasing addition to any room.

Dimensions: Small, diameter 55cm. H 31cm.

Appearance: Pale grey, grey or black corrugated dome with base flange.
Design: 2014. By Iskos-Berlin for Muuto.
Material: PET, synthetic felt and rubber.
Cable: 4m black rubber cable and white ceiling rose.
Size: Dia 55cm. H 31cm. An 82cm diameter version is also available.
Weight: 1.5kg.
Bulb: 1 x E27 90mm white LED or LED of choice. Not included.

Iskos-Berlin is the design partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos. Although the firm is relatively new, being established in 2010, Iskos and Berlin have worked together for many years and enjoyed considerable success. In 1987 Boris co-founded the extraordinary Komplot Design and later employed Aleksej as his assistant thus starting a mutually beneficial working relationship. Over the years the two men developed a very particular philosophy where design was seen as a story to be told. The story was often complex but the magic of it was in the telling, the clarity of narrative, the unexpected twists and turns and of course the satisfying conclusion all threaded, if the story was to be believed, with a living humour. It is their intention to imbue the products they conjure with all these properties, to combine these design digressions into an understandable whole to which the majority of people can easily relate. This is not about simplification but about leading the way through complexity.

Muuto are a Finnish design company who are striving to expand the Scandinavian design tradition with a new and original outlook. It is probably fitting then that their name is inspired by the Finnish word muutos, which roughly translated means ‘new perspective’. For Muuto good design starts with the individual, they hand pick the brightest design talent in Scandinavia and then give them the freedom to express their own personal story through everyday objects. Some wish to alter the world, others find passion in colour and shape or draw deeply from their past. How do they see a chair or a vase or a lamp, what is their relationship with the most ordinary of objects? How can that relationship reinvent and reinvigorate? How can the familiar have new life and love breathed into it? The answer is muutos. Objects made sublime through fresh perspective, objects that resonate with different types of people right across the world, objects representing the very best of Scandinavian design.
