Ingo Maurer has been one of the great designers of the last century. Of German nationality, after his time at Kayser Aluminium and IBM in the United States he decided to return to his country and found his own firm, where he focused on lighting design.
Obsessed by the “mystical” properties of light, he was a pioneer in the use of technology, creativity and originality. His works have been exhibited in museums around the world.
A daring and peculiar style that we can contemplate with the Seven Rats table lamp. An 85x40cm luminaire with 350cm of cable that represents a structure composed of “badly placed boxes” where four black rats and three white ones have been “trapped”. The light beam is located at the base of the luminaire and creates a reflection on the whole structure by being projected onto the steel, brass and gold of the boxes.
