Heracleum Suspended


design Bertjan Pot, 2010

The Heracleum Suspended met with great success around the world since its introduction in 2010, which prompted Moooi to decline it in versions Heracleum The Big O and Heracleum Endless: now, the Heracleum can deploy its timeless grace in all types of spaces, whether large or small, collective or private.

Like many of his creations, Bertjan Pot developed the Heracleum following a somewhat gratuitous and risky experiment. As he enjoys exploring the possibilities of materials, the Dutch designer attempted to light many LED simultaneously from a bundle of electrical wires shaped into a branch structure. He then realized that his idea required too much soldering.

Bertjan Pot then contacted the founder and creative director of Moooi, Marcel Wanders, who proposed him the electrosandwich: a technique with two layers of insulation and conductivity integrated into the structure, which allows him to design an even more slender Heracleum suspension than he expected.

A particularly light and elegant white version completed the range in 2021.

Bertjan Pot

Bertjan Pot is a designer, probably best known for his Random Light (1999). The light started as a material experiment, which is basically the start of each product created by Studio Bertjan Pot. The outcome is usually an interior product showing a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors. Most experiments start quite impulsively by a certain curiosity for how things would function or how something would look. From there Bertjan takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push the boundaries a bit. The reward for each challenge is a new one. Studio Bertjan Pot works with manufacturers such as Arco, Established & Sons, Feld, Gelderland, Montis, Moooi and Richard Lampert.
