Moooi is one of the main international companies to mention when we’re talking about luxurious interior design. This renowned Dutch furniture brand was founded in 2001 by Casper Vissers, a talented entrepreneur, and Marcel Wanders, a famous Dutch product and interior designer. This quite young company is named after the founders’ native Dutch word for beautiful - “Moooi”, with an extra “o”, though. Moooi has seduced and inspired the world with its extravagant and unique creations. Let’s find out together the secret of Moooi international success and some of the brand's more renowned designs.
The art director of this furniture company is Marcel Wanders, an internationally renowned Dutch designer who worked with some of the leading design companies all over the world. Describing Moooi’s main philosophy, Marcel Wanders said: “We don’t tell designers what to do, we listen to what designers want to make, try to realize their dreams.” This concept is perfectly reflected in the brand's collections of furniture and lighting. Moooi creations are playful, unique and extremely extravagant. Its furniture, lighting and home accessories are always on the edge of cultural interest and commercial reality. Moooi international success is the result of its fruitful collaboration with a number of talented designers who are absolutely welcome to give free rein to their creativity. Marcel Wanders himself designed some of the company’s best creations. Besides, the brand’s portfolio contains a number of models from internationally acclaimed designers: Edward van Vliet, Joost van Bleiswijk, Maarten Baas, Studio Job, Nika Zupanc, Arihiro Miyake and many others.
