The samurai helmet has great importance in Japanese culture. While the helmets were formed to strike fear into their enemy, the Ingo Maurer Samurai Floor Lamp, formed more as the creative embodiment of the helmet rather than the helmet itself, can be seen as a modern memorial that honors the strict moral code Japanese samurai followed. Part of the MaMo Nouchies Collection designed by Dagmar Mombach and Ingo Maurer, 1998.
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.
The Samurai Floor Lamp is available with the following:
- Natural paper shade
- Stainless steel base
- Electronic transformer
- Continuously variable dimmer
- Not suitable for damp locations
- Not UL/ETL Listed
- Made in Germany
- Designed by Dagmar Mombach and Ingo Maurer, 1998
