Moooi fixtures developed before 2008 have been specifically designed for use with incandescent lightsources. Due to the new European regulations these will not be available in the European Union in the near future. The EU`s objective is to save energy and help the market push more efficient CFL& LED lightbulbs.

Basically CFL technology is similar to TL type lamps, but smaller. Moooi fixtures can be used which each available self-ballasted CFL for Edison type lampholders (E12, E14, E26 or E27) and below the maximum power rating of the fixture. Most important difference in use between incandescent and CFL, is that CFL is up to 5x more efficient which means that out of the absorbed power 5x more energy is being converted into the actual output of light.
