The Local’s series Made in Germany presents the best the country has to offer, including high-end lighting designer Ingo Maurer.
From luxury cars to precision machinery, “Made in Germany” still means quality craftsmanship around the world. But the Teutonic attention to detail goes far beyond engineering. This series features a diverse array of products from both well-known German brands and less famous firms. But no matter big or small, all of them are focused on being the best at what they do.
For more than forty years, Ingo Maurer has been one of the world’s preeminent light designers. Or, as the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum said of him when they featured his work in a solo show in 2007, Ingo Maurer is “part designer, part artist, part entrepreneur and magician.”
