Bulb recommendation

 

 

Ingo Maurer was born on May 12, 1932 in Germany. Training as a typo-grapher in both Germany and Switzerland, Maurer went on to study graphic design (1954 to 1958). In 1960 Maurer left Germany for the United States, working in New York and San Francisco as a freelance graphic designer. It was during this period he developed a love for New York City and the feeling that "All things were possible." In 1963, Maurer moved back to Germany and in 1966 he set up his Design M studio in Munich, laying the foundations for lighting manufacturer Ingo Maurer GmbH which began life in 1973. Known for being an extremely talented German industrial designer, Maurer specialised in lighting designs and light installations. Over the years he has created exceptional lamps, lighting systems and objects beginning from the mid 1960s, now working with a team of young designers, referred to as 'Ingo Maurer and Team.' Ingo Maurer and his team steadily evolved taking on commissions for lighting as well as interior light-planning. Ingo Maurer looks to create new ideas for artistic installation or lighting objects, providing intriguing and pleasant spaces for people working and living in the space. Ingo Maurer believed 'art is what a person sees in an object.'

 

This Iconic Lights range is inspired by Ingo Maurer who designed his enormous XXL Dome hanging lights in 1998 as part of the lighting scheme for Munich's Westfriedhof subway station. Nearly four meters in diameter, the aluminum domes hover above the platform. In combination with blue lights installed onto ceilings and walls, they create the illusion of a futuristic dream world. in 1999 Maurer launched a smaller, mass-produced version, a little more than half the size of the original. Instead of aluminum, this version of the XXL Dome uses fiberglass, while the reflectors' inner surfaces are enameled fluorescent pink, orange, red or green.
