Designer: Ingo Maurer. Hot Achille is an homage to the work of Achille Castiglioni. In particular, it is a celebration of his Parentesi lamp of 1971, which ran from floor to ceiling and was kept taut by a counter-weight. Hot Achille consists of a freely rotatable aluminum reflector hung on a length of adjustable cable and powered by a counter-weight and electronic transformer with a continuously variable dimmer. Ingo Maurer not only concentrates on the functional nature of light but also the quality of light within a given space.
Stainless steel, aluminum reflector with protective glass cover, coaxial cable. Electronic transformer, 125 volts, black, with a push button on/off switch. For ceilings up to a height of 118.11" or 137.8". The height of the lamp can be modified within a limited range, and the reflector is freely rotatable. An adjustable weight ensures that the coaxial cable remains taut. Complete with bulb.

Ingo Maurer is a German industrial designer who is known for the design of his lamps and light installations. Maurer, the son of a fisherman, was born May 12, 1932 on the island Reichenau in Lake of Constance, Germany. After an apprenticeship as a typesetter, he studied graphic design in Munich, Germany. In 1960 Maurer left Germany for the United States, where he worked in New York and San Francisco as a freelance graphic designer. In 1963, Maurer moved back to Germany and founded Design M where he was able to develop and manufacture lamps after his own designs. One of his first designs, Bulb (1966) has been included in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Since the early 1980's Maurer has worked with a team of designers and developers has received numerous awards for his work.See other lights/products from Ingo Maurer
