Sexy and studious, the Ingo Maurer Oskar Task and Bookend Light was designed by Maurer to both hold books in place when they're on a shelf and illuminate their pages when they're being read. The slim, rectangular aluminum transformer base fits in seamlessly with a row of books. From this, an adjustable metal arm projects for perfectly positioned reading light.
For more than 40 years Ingo Maurer has created somewhat irreverent and thought-provoking designs in a method that is more exo-modern than contemporary. These experimentalist collections enliven fashion runways, monuments and private homes, giving Ingo Maurer lighting a name that resounds in the minds of the design-forward.
