Coppélia by Arihiro Miyake for Moooi

Inspired by the ballet of the same name, Coppélia is a pendant lamp by Arihiro Miyake for Moooi. The story behind the ballet involves a mechanical doll that comes to life. Coppélia captures the spirit of this mysterious transcendence.

Composed of bent metal wires and polycarbonate shades over 54 LED tubes, Coppélia could not be possible without LED technology. The polished stainless steel frame, suspended airily like a pirouetting ballerina, appears animated by the luminous cylinders.

Coppélia’s metal recalls a clockwork doll’s winding key, while the bits of dancing light emphasize motion, a metaphor perhaps for coming to life.
