Metaphysical lamp MASK by Stefano Giovanonni for MOOOI
Mask is a metaphysical lamp which investigates the relation between geometry and shape, symmetry and asymmetry, meaning and communication.
Born in La Spezia, Stefano graduated at the Faculty of Architecture in Florence, and currently works and lives in Milan. He has designed many great commercial successful products, among them Girotondo and Mami series, plastic products, the Alessi bathroom, the Bombo series for Magis and several electronic devices for some of the most important International brands.

This story starts 12 years ago, when the paths of Casper Vissers and Marcel Wanders crossed. Ever since they have collaborated intensively together, sharing the same passion for beauty & design.
They complemented each other right from the beginning and to this day Marcel is the obstinate, passionate designer with a nose for business, and Casper the driven marketer with a keen eye for design. They represent the perfect synergy between passion & ratio.
They founded Moooi in 2001, dividing the company’s shares equally, and decided to name the venture after the native Dutch word for beautiful: the third ‘o’ in the brand name standing for an extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.
