The Button, custom-made digital superhero for Moooi

Challenges

Which challenges for Moooi and Selinko?

  • Everyone involved, including the second-hand buyer, should have a way to know if they have a real product in front of them and not a fake.
  • How to place the tag? It has to be placed on a variety of materials and should fit to the exclusive Moooi design.
  • How to ensure the value of the product also for resale.
  • How can they manage their supply chain in the most effective way?

Solutions

The combination of a unique digital ID, powered by a secure platform, and an adapted secure NFC tag on every product allows:

  • unequivocal authentication,
  • ownership certificates and transfers, including one more year of warranty,
  • tracking & tracing.

Production and integration

‘The Button’:

  • A premium button designed by Moooi contains the NFC tag.
  • The Button fits to the premium design of the products and is easy to apply.
  • It can be glued to the furniture and attached to the cables of the lighting systems.

Secure NFC tag:

  • Can’t be copied.
  • Can’t be removed without damaging it and being detected.

The app:

  • Selinko developed an app for Moooi that opens when the tag is scanned to deliver the authenticity information.

Ownership certificate and transfer with warranty extension:

  • Linked to the unique ID of the product.
  • The product ownership certificate can be asked and transferred when reselling.
  • Warranty extension of one year when the buyer registers the product.

An easy tracking solution to improve supply chain efficiency:

  • Selinko provided a manual device that easily pairs each NFC tag to the product and the unique barcode on the cardboard packaging.

Results

Clients can authenticate their product when simply tapping The Button (NFC tag) with their smartphone. This opens the app and guarantees the authenticity and provenance of the product. The buyer can also register the product and receive a digital certificate of ownership delivered by Moooi.

The solution shows that Moooi cares for them. This builds consumer trust in the brand and protects the value of the product over time. The same registration process is also used for a warranty extension of one year.

As a result, the brand noticed a significant reduction in online counterfeits. The track & trace solution allows the company to improve their supply chain efficiency by tracking each individual product, without making any changes to their current processes.

“In a world where mass production and counterfeiting are increasingly common, we created The Button. This small digital superhero provides Moooi products with an authentic digital identity.”
