Creating extraordinary things out of ordinary is the speciality of Joost van Bleiswijk - a Dutch-based designer- who has recently come up with new lighting design. Joost spent hours tinkering on a rhythmic installation of lamps while searching for unusual ways of capturing and reflecting light. And finally, the outcome is a product which can be said an epitome of magnificent craftsmanship.
Why Tinkering is Special?
Made from coated stainless steel and brass, Tinkering is an outstanding yet unconventional lighting design. The marvellous suspension lamp gives an open and translucent feel. Further, the colour, design and materials of the lamp give a modern feel.
It has a Button which showcases Moooi’s digital proof of authenticity. The company has incorporated NFC technology in The Button. So, when you register your name for the purchase, you secure your investment in addition to the extended warranty.
The best part is that it has no electrical wires as it is powered through Moooi’s proprietary technology- Electrosandwich® by Marcel Wanders. It is an alternative to conventional wiring.
The use of Electrosandwich® shows how important innovation is for the brand. Some of the Moooi’s most iconic designs, such as Heracleum and the recently launched Hubble Bubble- are also become viable with Electrosandwich®.
The lamp is available in two sizes- Tinkering 85 and Tinkering 140.

What made the designer craft such a unique design?
“I crafted Tinkering specifically for my house, it’s a very personal object. The process of making and discovering the right construction dictates my design. It is revealed to me whenever I put materials together with screws or glue, or tear pieces of cardboard to create a shape. I appreciate the rawness or irregularity of the material and let my craftsmanship follow these elements when I’m creating.”
