LabelLike Wanders's "Knotted" Chair, this table is made from cotton that has been impregnated with an epoxy resin to make it hard. Wanders founded Moooi (he added an "o" to the Dutch word "mooi," which means beautiful) in 2001. He believes that while it is important for designers to think about concepts, "It is even more important to pay attention to the materials."
