Design by Bertjan Pot, 2001.
Well on its way to becoming a classic. Random is formed from resin drained yarn that is randomly coiled around an inflatable mold, creating a magic translucent 3D fabric.
The body is a unified piece with a small opening at the top for access to the lamp. Chrome stem and socket cover. Random provides ambient, direct illumination.
Lamp Type: incandescent
Bulbs: 1 X 60W 120V E26 (medium base) incandescent lamp (not included)
Listing: UL, cUL
Bertjan Pot was born 1975 in Nieuwleusen, the Netherlands (a small town in the east of the country). He now lives in Rotterdam working on various projects. Sometimes he initiates a project himself because he likes it so much that he feels that it just has to be made. Sometimes he is commissioned to do a project because other people like his work. Bertjan's main fascination is material and production processes.
In design, Bertjan flirts with computer esthetics and industrial production methods, but without using a computer (at least not as a design tool) and sometimes also without the industrial production method. Almost all designs come from experiments in materials, old and new. The way a product feels is just as important as the way it looks.
Moooi is an avant-garde Dutch design firm specializing in lighting, furniture and textiles. Its designs, in collaboration with renowned designers including Marcel Wanders, Ross Lovegrove and Jasper Morrison, are cutting edge, yet retain a playful character.
Beautiful light and design. Every time I go into the room I look up and admire. Infinitely interesting addition to the room.

Light arrived by UPS freight in a huge box with what seemed like adequate protection, but the light had a big indentation in the bottom. Luckily, it popped out with mild pressure with no residual defects. It was very easy to install and the light pattern it casts on the walls is just awesome. The lights are much larger than you realize and I'm glad I chose the medium over the large for my purpose. Highly recommended.

Such a simple pendant light but the overall effect is so dramatic.
Once again Y Lighting have delivered a fabulous product quickly and efficiently, I'll purchase through them again and again.

A bright original.
The Random Light is a shining example of good design and good function in a singularly original light. Because of this, it will never be "out of style".

This light is even cooler than it looks online and in print. We have it hanging in a massive stairway with 20 ft high ceilings and it looks like a piece of art. We were contemplating hanging art on the wall behind it but this IS art. It was also very easy to install by our electrician and is very light. We love it in black against our white walls.

The Random Light is so beautiful when lit at night, it looks magical! It is a lot of money for what it really is, but the look is so spectacular, it's worth it. The shipping was very professional, at one point there was a problem with the freight train the light was comming on, but UPS kept me informed, by phone, on the change in delivery.
My only complaint would be the instructions, they were simply a piece of paper with pictures only, no written instructions. My husband is a contractor, and it took him a while to figure them out, but he did. It's just for this amout of money, any instructions should be very clear.

Dramatic and elegant
The Random Light is dramatic and elegant in our bedroom. It casts amazing shadows at night, particularly when dimmed. It was easy to install and is a good size.

This pendant is spectacular.
After looking at this pendant in several magazines for the past couple of years, I decided to go ahead and splurge on this pendant. I was very pleased at the packaging. The lamp was delivered on a crate by UPS Freight. The lamp was easy to install and looks beautiful in my dining room. I did change the bulb to a frosted one to prevent glare above the dining room table but otherwise, I am very happy that I purchased. The only problem is that it now makes my foyer light look meek and therefore this now has to be replaced.

This light is amazing!
It is worth it to spend the money for this light. I purchased one of each size in black, and they are absolutely breathtaking. They are abstract and whimsical but substantial as well. And when lit up, I haven't seen any large scale pendant yet that is as cool as this fixture.
