Design In Amsterdam: Moooi Showroom & Marcel Wanders Design Studio

Last week I spent four days on a design bloggers tour in Amsterdam. One of our first stops was a visit to an iconic Dutch design address: the Moooi showroom and the design studio of Dutch designer Marcel Wanders. Moooi sounds pretty fun but in fact it is the Dutch word for 'beautiful' with an additional 'o' to emphasize the brand's extra value in terms of beauty and uniqueness. Moooi is a venture by the designer Marcel Wanders and his business partner Casper Vissers.

My very first impression when I entered the showroom was sheer awe - a grand space full of design, from modern to Scandinavian inspired to totally quirky - and all with a huge dash of greens. A fantastic design urban jungle if you want so. Everything was much more clear to me when I heard the mission of Moooi: Making environments more beautiful, exciting and inspiring. And they showcase it perfectly in theirs showroom - Moooi shows interior ideas in terms of how a room can be transformed into a rich and colorfully dressed living area with a variety of patterns and colours. 

Apart from all the wild indoor plants I was particularly fascinated by their lighting solutions: the light Heracleum pendant, the dreamy Random Light or the glamorous Prop Light. Apart from discovering design, we were also asked to personalize the new Egg Vase for each of us - a really fun experience!

Later on we went upstairs to peek into the design studio of Marcel Wanders. Imagine conference rooms like out of an 'Alice in Wonderland' set-up, open, bright offices, eclectic details and a family like atmosphere. 

Even though this was just the first day of our Amsterdam bloggers tour, I felt already very inspired with a good load of original Dutch design. Stay tuned for more over the coming days!

Happy weekend everyone!
