German lamp designer Ingo Maurer creates luminaires that have often found their place in design history and have changed the way lighting is designed. Some of his iconic lamps, like ‘Porca Miseria!’ – a chandelier made of smashed porcelain – are today part of the MoMA collection. All lamps are handmade in Maurer’s Munich workshop. Ingo Maurer has been in this business for 50 years now and has always been a great innovator when it comes to design,
functionality and technological progress. Maurer originally trained as typographer and designer in Switzerland and Germany and always had a fascination for lamps and especially lightbulbs.
