moooi and the city


Yesterday was the local introduction of the renowned international brand moooi in Victoria, BC. Only Human (Chris and Christina Rothery) have brought something completely new to the Victoria market. It is so refreshing to see these extraordinary pieces in Victoria, pieces that you usually only see in magazines or on the web. Chris & Christina chose the Martin Bachelor Gallery (712 Comorant Street) to elegantly display some selected pieces of the new moooi collection.





You may wonder - what is moooi? Well, moooi means pretty in Dutch and is a company originally from Holland that was created 6 years ago by Marcel Wanders & Caspar Vissers. moooi is in all aspects innovative; their products; their materials; their corporate identity and their business approach. moooi is a creative laboratory where alchemy is their main ingredient.

Their pieces are as unique as the designers behind the creative process. The designers at moooi look for a memorable moment and the pieces are what makes that moment; sometimes a sense of humor, other times a sense of sophistication, or just a simple sense of surprise.

moooi brings the past to the present, and the present to the future intending to create a connection with the moment you are living in. Chris and Christina Rothery from Only Human are the links between these unique pieces and the new moments they will create in your own space.

Are you ready for moooi? Well I am - I already have my eyes on the horse lamp. I know it will suit my studio just perfectly.
