MORI MON­STERS

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY MORITZ WALDEMEYER

Lon­don-based de­signer Moritz Waldemeyer drew on Per­sian mythol­ogy for the two mod­els in his col­lec­tion—one aptly named Ghoul, the other with the more con­ven­tional moniker Jenny. Ac­cord­ing to Waldemeyer, Ghoul feasts on the dead while Jenny is a spirit that takes over peo­ple and in­flu­ences them to do ter­ri­ble things.

Both of the Mori Mon­sters fea­ture LED pan­els as eyes. Waldemeyer soft­ened the look with a glass cas­ing that is car­toon­ish in de­sign.

“We wanted to bal­ance it out by de­pict­ing them in a cute style in­spired by the Ja­panese kawaii look. We set the eyes low in the head so it has a cutesy ap­pear­ance, but then we chose red for the colour of the eyes, so there is the bal­ance of cute and evil.”
