Lacrime del Pescatore translates to "tears of the fisherman". It is easy to see how the name came about, Lacrime del Pescatore has 385 crystals suspended from three nets, all bringing the literal translation to life. Lacrime del Pescatore is made up of three layered nylon nets, with approximately 385 crystals suspended from the nets. The light source is a wall mounted spot light that shines its light onto the crystals. The fixture can be mounted in a multitude of ways on ceilings or walls. Lacrime del Pescatore elegantly glitters during the day in sun-filled rooms creating magical displays on walls and surfaces. With little effort the installation of multiple models can create an impressive and poetic light object.

Ideally suited for ceiling heights of 8 to 12 feet, with distance for suspension points of about 78", this will allow the bottom net to hang about 29" from the ceiling. The distance between the light source and the center of the nets should be between 78 to 157". The low-voltage light source mounts to the wall and operates with a cord and plug (junction box is not required). On/off switch is located on the cord.

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.

Working in a Munich factory, everything they make is made with the love of detail, master craftsmanship and input from a lot of human hands.

Their passion to create is as strong as their desire to share an enthusiasm for light, and quality lighting objects. They derive immense satisfaction when they are able to build emotional connections between the aesthetic and functional potential of a lamp. They love what they do everyday, and recognize how fortunate they are their creations are loved.
