Manooi Light Creations make luscious lighting — glam, bling and fabulous, these luxe crystal lights are high-end and decidedly ‘wow.’ Each Manooi chandelier or light fitting is made from many crystals: Crystals reflect and refract natural light, turning each light ray into a prism of rainbow colors. This is pleasing to the eye and also creates an ambient, relaxing atmosphere.
“Manooi is inspired by the natural light around us. As we design and manufacture custom-made crystal chandeliers our goal is to re-create this harmonious, positive natural light within individual homes and public buildings.”
The Manooi design team partnered with world-famous Swarovski crystals, who created the custom-made, bespoke Artica crystal, designed by Manooi’s co-founder and head designer Janos Heder, with eliptical contours that reflects the shape of Manooi’s flagship Artica chandelier. The process took two years and was deemed to represent the collaboration and synergy of the two companies — the Artica chandelier was designed to represent two galaxies in an embrace.
For centuries, crystal has been one of the most widely used components of chandeliers due to its unique quality of light reflection.
“The Artica crystal decorates each of these pieces and will be incorporated into every future Manooi piece, to provide proof of authenticity. As a tribute to enduring partnerships and to a brilliant artistic vision, it’s the ideal embodiment of the philosophical foundations of the brand. If Artica isn’t part of it, it’s not a true Manooi,” according to the Swarovski website.
Manooi Light Creations was founded by the artist/designer couple János Héder and Judit Zoltai. They jointly supervise the company, and János is Manooi’s lead designer.
“Light forms space — as an architect, I work with light sources as determining elements of a given space,” said János Héder, Manooi co-founder.
Artica is the Manooi flagship chandelier, recognized around the world — that is if your world consists of luxury and high living.
“Artica expresses the imperfect perfection of our universe and is the product of dozens of attempts to embody this initial concept. Artica is a magical chandelier representing two galaxies embracing each other,” according to the Manooi website.
The Ozero pendant light combines Manooi’s iconic ‘iceberg’ shape with the Lune upper hemisphere — part of the Personal Universe Collection. It debuted in the main hall of the Hungarian Art Gallery: Three large and imposing chandeliers create a beautiful spectacle against the classical backdrop of the gallery’s baroque interior.
The “ultimate go-anywhere yacht” Ulysses was not complete without its own Artica chandelier hanging majestically above the bar (or its own helipad).
Manooi also creates custom-made lighting for the home — if your home happens to be the epitome of high-end (and top dollar) fashion and design.
“We ultimately believe that good design should make the world around us a more beautiful and harmonious place to live… we’re passionate about bringing light to you in its purest form,” according to the Manooi Light Creations website.
