Designer Q&A: Arihiro Miyake | Coppélia | Moooi


Hi, I’m Arihiro Miyake, designer for Moooi. This is my latest work for Moooi, the Coppélia
chandelier. I’m going to answer a few questions for
social media. Inspiration for my designs perhaps comes from
my life itself – friends, family, events, people on the streets. Any kind of event which catches my interest,
they stay in myself, and one day something is connected together and it becomes one idea
for my design. I like the fine elegant movements of ballet
dancers, and with Coppélia we’re using these really thin, fine wires, so I thought
it’s good to express some fine afterimage of ballet dancers. In general, my interest towards design is
some technical challenge: to make something really light or something really thin. For that, I always need to convince the people
who work with me, companies or technical people for instance or the craftsmen in workshops,
to share my idea. That might be my big work for me.
