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 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.
