NR 2.0

How to seamlessly integrate a LED module in the delicate NR 2.0 Wireframe?

Challenge

Creating a homogeneous light distribution without visible individual LEDs, in combination with the super thin module geomtry was the main challenge. The seamless transition of the wireframe to the LED module made it even more interesting. Of course all parts needed to live up to high Moooi quality standards, so for instance a central injection gate in the diffuser was absolutely a no go.

Solutions

To master these challenges we needed a combination of some clever Kees tricks, in short; by placing 2 concentric LED rings centrally in the module under the right angles in combination with a special Optical Grade diffuser material from Sabic, we reached the desired light distribution. By a smart click system between diffuser and heatsink, we were able to create a super slim but still robust construction between LED module and wireframe.

"Jaap& Odin created the exact result we projected when we started the NR2 project. We wanted a smooth& elegant LED solution with high quality for this new, sophisticated lighting product. Their creativity& technical knowledge together with their wit and charm convinced us their solution would be the right one.. and it was"

Result

An elegant, bright, lighthearted bubble is dressed in a fine web of white thread thet shines and glimmers in the light. Thanks to the integrated LED lamp, developed by StudioKees, this new creation of Bertjan Pot subtly diffuses its soft, magic glow around the room.
