Design by Ingo Maurer and Axel Schmid, 2011.
Made in Germany, by Ingo Maurer.

In 2011, Ingo Maurer presented two bulbs with insects circling around them. Each of the insects are intricately made by hand (no two are exactly the same). The larger of those two bulbs was the J.B. Schmetterling, made as a limited edition. A halogen light source is suspended in the middle of a mouth-blown glass bulb form. Eight, highly-detailed, handmade insects are attached on the white ring that surrounds the glass bulb. The insects, as in nature, seem to be attracted to the light. The ring itself is formed by flexible freeform manufacturing (3D Printing). The overall shape of the fixture once again shows Ingo Maurer's love of the incandescent lamp.

Pendant light provides direct and ambient illumination. The white ring helps diffuse and direct the light. Includes canopy plate for covering US junction boxes.

Ingo Maurer

Ingo Maurer, the son of a fisherman, was born May 12, 1932 on the island Reichenau in Lake of Constance, Germany. He trained as a typo-grapher in Germany and Switzerland and later went on to study graphic design (1954 to 1958). In 1960 Maurer left Germany for the United States, where he worked in New York and San Francisco as a freelance graphic designer. During this time he developed a genuine love for New York City and the feeling that "All things were possible" there. 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), was inspired after a night out and later looking at a bare-bulb fixture in the ceiling. The Edison bulb has a special quality, its shape was simple yet most beautiful. The Bulb was the first of many homages to the Edison bulb, an object that Ingo Maurer holds in high regard. Bulb, along with many of his works, is included in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Many of his designs are based on the fascination of banal things, ordinary objects that are seen every day and no longer noticed. He takes them out of their context and celebrates them.

Ingo Maurer has been designing and creating award-winnning lighting works for over forty years. His love of the incandescent lamp has not stopped him from trying all the new lighting technologies. His lighting toolbox is filled with high-tech and low-tech, exotic and ordinary things, with useful and useless techniques, with lighting punch and gentle shimmer, with Aah and Argh.... All resulting in works of art that are also fully functional and well-engineered lighting pieces.
