A few years back a playful experiment with a small LED matrix at Studio Waldemeyer produced a surprising result. Despite it's very low resolution, the digital circuit managed to perfectly reproduce the complex motion of a flame. But the surprise was less in the technical ability but in people's response to it. As if by magic we had captured the essence of everything a flame means, and added some intrigue. The tiny circuit had it's own soul and captured peoples imagination unlike anything we had created up to this point or since.
mori.london sets out to define a completely new category of lighting: playful, emotional, atmospheric and elegant, always innovative and always low power and low impact on the environment. mori.london creates the perfect balance of beautifully crafted objects with a sprinkling of tech. We use inspiration from the past to position themselves right in the future.
mori.london's debuts at Milan design week 2017 with two products: 'eternal flame' evokes the shape of a classic candle holder while 'midnight oil' is a minimal interpretation of a historic oil lamp. Their beautifully crafted hand made glass body offers the perfect housing for the minimal circuitry that carries the flame.
