A german guy, 78-year-old, who artistically blossoms the more the older he gets. I so much like the old people who are pushing the boundaries despite of their age while in the same time other older people get grounded around TV. And Mr Maurer is definitely one of the old school guys who can show that more you know more you can teach and show and not just reminisce in the senior house. He studied graphic design but somehow turned into lamp production and today you can see many beautiful features in his collection. He began to work alone in the production of lights in his cellar but by the time he hired few people and the company spread and moved out of cellar and finally today it consist of large team of designers. He definitely has a young soul, I noted, when I saw his EUROCONDOM which is a white rubber condom specially made for a bulb as a reaction on a new EU rule about restriction of white bulbs.
I´m not surprised the MoMA in New York has some of his treasure-products in its exposition. Ingo Maurer´s CV is full of awards and prizes. Good, now I feel inspired to lift my bum from a chair and create something. I hope you feel kind of like that, too. See you tomorrow!
