Research and innovation in lighting technology
Ingo Maurer, born 1932, started to design exceptional lighting and lighting systems in 1966, which his company produces and distributes worldwide. He develops lighting concepts and spectacular one-offs for private and public buildings with his team. Bulb (1966), the low-voltage halogen system YaYaHo (1984) and Lucellino (1992), a winged light bulb, are among his best-known designs. Ingo Maurer GmbH is based in Munich, Germany, with a large showroom next to the studio and offices. An older, but smaller showroom run directly by Ingo Maurer is located in Soho, New York.
