Lighting designer Bernhard Dessecker describes how he referenced the appearance of BMW headlights to create his Iconic Eyes lamp for Moooi in this movie Dezeen produced for the Dutch brand.
Munich-born Dessecker, who splits his time between his hometown and New England, studied interior architecture before entering the field of lighting design.
“What I love about lighting design is that it is never predictable,” he says in the movie, which Dezeen filmed for Moooi at Dessecker’s home studio in Munich.
“The quality of the light at the outcome is something that you can’t predict when you start working on an idea or start sketching.”
Iconic Eyes, Dessecker’s first design for Moooi, is an egg-shaped chandelier that comes in two sizes.
The fixture is covered with eye-like lenses of frosted glass set inside chrome rings, individually lit by LED lights.
