Moooi’s release for 2020 – destined for the Salone del Mobile furniture fair that was cancelled this year – is the Space Table Lamp, which offers an unusual spin on a regular lighting appliance. It has a slender mirrored surface and sits unobtrusively in the home. However, once switched on, it reveals a depth filled with different lighting hues. Material and technique work together in an unconventional way to create this element of surprise, which is characteristic of designer Ward Wijnant’s works.
