Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — YLiving, an online retailer for modern furniture, announces the addition of new Moooi designs to its collection. An avant-garde Dutch design firm specializing in furniture, lighting and textiles, Moooi’s new creations includes designs by Marcel Wanders, Studio Job and Sjoerd Vroonland. These new designs were showcased at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy in April, 2011, and are now available for sale for the first time in the United States.
Marcel Wanders, the art director and co-founder of Moooi, has two designs in the new collection. His Woood Desk, designed in 2010, is a modern interpretation of a classic piece. An ideal writing surface or computer desk, the Woood Desk features a sturdy structure with a two inch plug hole in the top to accommodate a computer cord or phone charger. The desk is stained a sleek black and features an oak veneer top and beech frame.
Wanders’ Fata Morgana TJ One Rug and Fata Morgana TJ Two Rug, both designed in 2010, are also included in YLiving’s new Moooi collection. A fearless piece of textile, the Fata Morgana TJ One and Two Rugs weave together tweed, hound’s-tooth, embroidery, knots and knits to create a masterpiece for your living space. Printed on nylon threads, the rugs feature various colors in a neutral palette.
Also new to the Moooi collection is the Gothic Chair designed by Studio Job, a design studio in Antwerp. The Gothic Chair was designed for the recently renovated Groninger Museum in the Netherlands. With the use of brightly colored polyethylene plastic, the Gothic Chair is a playful take on the solid wood and romantic elegance of the Gothic era. The chair is available in seven different colors and features contrasting upholstery buttons. The chair is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Rounding out the new additions to the Moooi collection, the Extension Chair, designed by Sjoerd Vroonland in 2010, draws on the manners and customs of how a chair is used. It features three extension accessories that can transform the chair into a coat hanger, hand-bag hanger, or card-holder. The Extension Chair is a study of modern craftsmanship and design while providing complete functionality. Whether used in a home, restaurant, or public space, the Extension Chair provides a visually intriguing way to sit.
Since its launch in 2001 by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers, Moooi has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs. Moooi is named after their native Dutch word for beautiful — with a third ‘o’ for extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness. Moooi style is exclusive, daring, playful and exquisite, as is seen in their other iconic designs such as the Smoke Chair Series, Egg Vase, and Random Light.
