Modern Interior Design with Ingo Maurer Floatation Lamp from Stardust.com

The Ingo Maurer Floatation Lamp is one of the most beautiful chandeliers in our lighting collection. The uniquely beautiful Floatation Lamp is a sensation to behold. Floatation was created by the legendary lighting designer Ingo Maurer for his namesake company. German lighting prodigy Ingo Maurer's is often called "a poet of light". Able to infuse a simple object like a light bulb for example with a poetic exploration of a conceptual theme, German lighting prodigy Ingo Maurer's work bridges art and function. The Floatation Lamp by Ingo Maurer is a true classic and a fine example of Ingo Maurer's artistry. Ingo Maurer's Floatation is composed of three crinkled Japanese paper shades which are suspended from thin metal cables. The Japanese paper are shades nested within each other to create a soft, ethereal diffusion of light throughout a space. The height of Floatation can be adjusted with a red enameled iron ring, which serves as a counterweight. The white lacquered ceiling canopy installs flush to the ceiling.
