The Lamps of Ingo Maurer
Design Schau! Speech
Rosenheimer Straße 5, 81667 München
This lecture aims to convey the knowledge to recognize the inherent quality of Ingo Maurer's lighting designs by providing insight into the manufacturing process and a design-theoretic analysis.
Many of Munich's public spaces are hard to imagine without the lamps of lighting designer Ingo Maurer. His designs embrace elegance, playfulness and even humor – and yet they are rarely attributed to him in the public realm.
To gain a more conscious view of the design quality inherent in his objects, this lecture will take a close look at his serially produced lamps and at unique pieces from a design-theoretic point of view. The speaker will also provide insight into the design approaches as well as on the manufacturing process and analyze the formative aspect of the lighting objects.
