Ingo Maurer did an amazing job creating this iconic and sought after giant Bulb light, original from the late 1960ies.
The light is made of a heavy chrome plated metal base holding a 4 mm. clear glass bulb shaped shade. One E27 socket is in the middle. The heavy base ( h 17.5 cm ) keeps the light very stable. The quite large size of the light makes it also possible to use it as a floor light. Pop-art influences and Maurer’s fascination for the bare bulb has resulted in this powerful original sixties design.Literature: ‘1000 lights’ ( Fiell ) fig. p. 100
