Inspired by the epynomous plant, Heracleum – The Big O is a striking design that combines the precision of expert craftsmanship with a delicate, organic structure.

Moooi have expanded their lighting range with the new Heracleum suspension light – The Big O. Released at the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair, The Big O by Dutch designers Bertjan Pot & Marcel Wanders is a technical, structured LED suspension light inspired by the Heracleum plant.


The white, leaf-like polycarbonate lenses branch out to create a crafted yet natural looking form. The delicate and weightless appearance of the light is only made possible by coating the conductive layers of the metal wire frame, a design not possible with standard wires.


Colour options include Nickel or Copper.
