The Ingo Maurer Story
Ingo Maurer lighting officially began 34 years after the man himself was born on Reichenau Island, Germany in 1932. Trained as a typographer and graphic designer, Maurer turned to lighting. He created his first lamp, the Bulb Table Lamp, in 1966. Other financial successes over the next two decades eventually allowed Maurer to take greater creative license with lighting forms and experiment with technologies to that end (i.e. LEDs, holograms, etc.).
