Heracleum The Big O Suspension Light

$16,203.00
Designed by:  Bertjan Pot
Manufactured by:  Moooi

The Heracleum light is a remarkable design that is truly an example of the intersection of technology and art.  According to the lamp’s designer, “I had this idea of where a bundle of stick-like branches are split then split again ending up like leaves on the end of a branch.”  Pot’s inspiration for the form came from nature – the ubiquitous Heracleum plant often referred to as cow parsnip or hogweed. In order to achieve the Heracleum light’s novel aesthetic, the designer credits fellow designer, Marcel Wanders, with developing the technology to enable it.  Referred to as “Electrosandwich,” this patented process powers the LEDs directly through layers of conductive material within the frame itself.  Dutch manufacturer, Moooi, now produces several versions of this lighting design.  Noted here is Heracleum Big O, a dramatic round version of the light available with a choice of finishes.  Manufactured by Moooi.

Designed in 2012.

Overall Dimension:  82.7" Diameter, 9.1" H plus 157.5” cable
