Dutch design company Moooi (which translates from Dutch to beautiful) has just opened their new store in London! From the website:
"The World of Moooi will be revealed to London under the creative direction of designer and Cofounder Marcel Wanders. The new canal side residence will be located at The Dock’s distinguished White Building, a Grade II listed stucco house dating back to the late 1900s. Joining Moooi in the 250m² ground floor space, is Dutch resin flooring specialist Senso, who will be marking this event with the international debut of a unique range of flooring designed by Marcel Wanders, with a print true to the style of Wanders’ ‘new classics’, giving the spectator a playful three-dimensional illusion.
The permanent showroom will house Moooi’s design icons in coexistence with the new products launched at the Salone del Mobile 2010 in Milan. The introductions include the new Monster chair by Marcel Wanders, the tenderness and grace of Nika Zupanc’s 5 O’ Clock table & chairs and the exotic elegance of the Emperor lamp by Chinese designers Neri & Hu – all seen for the first time in the UK. Amongst the iconic products on display will be the extraordinary Smoke collection by Maarten Baas, the inventive Brave New World lamp by the young British duo Fresh West, Skai table tops as an addition to Marcel Wanders’ successful Container Table collection and the soft glow of Raimond Puts’ LED lamp, last year’s star."
