Moooi's Prop Light by Dutch designer Bertjan Pot has received the award for best lighting during Harper's Bazaar Interiors inaugural Design Awards in Dubai this month. “We have round lights, we have straight lights. We have them with lights on one side; we have them with lights on two sides. You can hang them high, low, horizontally, vertically or even hang them in an angle. Put them on the floor, hang them on your wall or down from the ceiling. We find it very hard to imagine an interior where this prop is not in place.” – Bertjan Pot
Bertjan Pot is well know for his experiments in design and material, this time he set his sights on glass. Designed in 2013 and launched by Moooi in Milan this year, Prop is a lighting series featuring bubbles of glass evoking the heyday of the silver screen and Hollywood. Each light uses LED lamps made even more energy efficient by dispersing light with an optical lense specially developed by Moooi.
