“I like to do something that other people have to get used to.”– Niels Wildenberg
And when you take in their loomingly large Lummel ‘desk’ lamps and their smirky polyethylene salute to the revered Eames lounger, it’s hard to disagree. These are Very Big Ideas from a very bright young company. Launched in 2012 by Bob Conray and Niels Wildenberg, MAL freely admits its designs are influenced by icons of the past. But, by presenting such classics in bold new contexts, surprising new products arise.
Prepare to be surprised by the Mondopiero MAL collection.
