Rick Tegelaar's much anticipated Meshmatics suspension light for Moooi, Netherlands, has finally arrived in the United States. Tegelaar quite literally developed special machinery and an associated set of tools that enable the designer to manipulate chicken wire in both a highly controlled and precise fashion. As described by the designer, "By stretching the material over a mold it shrinks itself to the form and takes its shape. The tension that comes into the material from stretching stays captured to form a very efficient structure. The material is now shown with a complete new perspective with new possibilities. The wire mesh acts as a reflector to distribute the light from the integrated LED in an elegant way. This results in changing transparencies due to the different tiers of the chandelier. In this way the light is captured to form a very visual yet transparent display."
Composed of galvanized steel and brass, Meshmatics is profoundly beautiful piece that diffuses shimmering light while casting a mesmerizing net of shadows on the ceiling. Need it quickly?
