Our passion is light

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.

Crystal is a beautiful material. It has been with us for centuries and remains one of the most widely used components for chandeliers for its unworldly quality of reflecting light. Over the years we have witnessed a continuously growing fondness in working with it. We hope to bring this joy to you and your environment as we ultimately believe that good design should make the world around us a more beautiful and harmonious place to live.

Manooi Light Creations was founded by the artist/designer couple János Héder and Judit Zoltai. The company has been operating under their joint supervision. János has from the beginning been the lead designer for Manooi. The workshop is a cradle of creative activity where the hands of devoted and talented young designers brainstorm, draw, play, assemble and reassemble models of beautiful light creations.

Light forms space – as an architect I work
with light sources as determining elements of
a given space.” – János Héder, lead designer

Manooi Light Creations continue to cooperate with architects around the world, developing special light installations for their projects. Year after year we are excited to present Manooi’s latest collections to our loyal international clients, many of them are art loving individuals with a constant desire for new and powerful aesthetics. The demand for a more personal design led us to experiment with new materials, design accessories and furniture. Check out these pages and our website for the latest developments.

“We’re passionate about bringing light to you in its purest form.” – János Héder

With the new collection we aim to maintain the duality in our brand pairing modernity and tradition, innovation and craftsmanship, simplicity and luxury. While constantly working on the perfection of our products the values upon which Manooi Crystal Light has been founded remain the same: exclusivity, uncompromising quality and limitless artistic creation.

We continue to focus on selecting the best raw materials when assembling our products. It does matter which crystal, suspension, cable or supporting materials we build in. Crystal works like a prism: the higher the lead content of the glass the stronger it scatters light. This is why we use only crystals of the highest quality available worldwide to manufacture Manooi chandeliers.

Every piece of the thousands of tiny little full-cut crystal pendants are suspended by nickel plated rings and the structure is always polished stainless steel or high quality copper. As always all Manooi Collections are assembled by hand in our very own workshop.

We love crystal for its quality of reflecting light. While custom-made crystal chandeliers remain our well-established international flagship product our passion led us to go beyond crystal. Our designers have started to play around and created sculpture like installations as well as tailor made personal compositions. We invite you to take a journey through our brand new products made of innovative materials. All have one thing in common: they bring you light in its purest form.
