Ingo Maurer is the founder of his eponymously named German company. This designer label was established in 1963 under the name “Design M” and later renamed “Ingo Maurer GmbH”. Right from its foundation, this exceptional designer label guarantees impressive and surprising designs. For example, one of the first designs, the “Bulb”, was an instant hit.
Ingo Maurer was solely responsible for all of the designs during the first 15 years. Thereafter, he was supported by a team of young designers, such as the Italian Raffaele Celentanoen and the German Axel Schmid.
Characteristic of the nostalgic Ingo Maurer lighting are references to elements from childhood. The designs appear as if a little piece of a fantasy world has been added to the surroundings. A great example is the lighting in the Ricchi Poveri collection, a collection full of magic and nostalgia.
Another characteristic element of the Ingo Maurer designs is the traditional light bulb. Many of his designs are an ode to Edison. However, his ultimate homage was when he came up with the Wo bist du Edison design. A pendant lamp with downward lighting that creates a 360° hologram of a light bulb.
As an innovative company, Ingo Maurer is a leader in designer lighting with LED and OLED technology. The brand has carried out pioneering experiments in the development of luminous carpet and LED wallpaper.
Moreover, the designer label likes to be enticed into producing impressive public artworks. A good example is the Torre Velasca in Milan.
It’s not surprising that Ingo Maurer designs have won awards in the fields of decoration, design and innovation. His designs are also exhibited in design museums, such as the Municipal Museum of Amsterdam.
