Ingo Maurer Zettel'z 6 Lamp with 80 Shades and 1 Light, White.  The Zettel'z 6 lamp was designed and created by Ingo Maurer in Germany. This exceptional light fixture was prominently featured at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The Ingo Maurer Zettel'z 6 Suspension Lamp accommodates 40 printed- and 40 blank Japanese paper sheets. Ingo Maurer uses this Japanese paper as a translucent medium. The 40 printed sheets display love letters in many languages that invites the owner to participate in the creativity. 40 blank pages are supplied to let you create your own letters to add to the design. The letters are individually attached to thin wires by clips.

German-born Ingo Maurer is one of the most prolific and respected artist/designers working today. Fascinated by what he calls the "magical and mystical" properties of light, Ingo Maurer constructs luminous atmospheres that play with traditional concepts of color, brightness, and shadow. Since 1966, Ingo Maurer has created more than 150 different lights and lighting systems and designed lighting for diverse international venues, including fashion runways, public buildings and monuments, and private commissions. Ingo Maurer uses unexpected materials and found objects to create light, and he is a pioneer in the usage of new lighting technologies. Ingo Maurer is among the most fascinating, prolific and respected designers and artists of today. With a primary focus on what he calls the magic of lighting Ingo Maurer has created over 150 different lighting systems and illuminated sculptures like the Ingo Maurer Campari Lamp, the Lucellino, the Bulb, the pop-art "Canned Light", the Ingo Maurer Floatation. We have enjoyed our relationship with him for many years and visit his showroom in Munich as often as we can, just for inspiration. Ingo Maurer often uses everyday materials and found objects for his light creations.He was among the first designers to develop a cable lighting system (YaYaHO) and from early on experimented with halogen and light-emitting diodes.
The names of the Ingo Maurer lights are almost as creative as the lights themselves: Alizz C. cooper, Willy Dilly, Licht.Einstein, Knitterling. I could go on and on.
Ingo Maurer seeks interaction from the users of his designs: there are mirrors to be directed, wires to string, love notes to attach to wires. Quirky details act as surprising elements that make you stop, look again to see if you were right, then smile. Alligators, inquisitive rats, chicken feet, scribbled love notes, wherever you look there's something new and exciting, something magical.
That's the pure reason why Ingo Maurer creates his fantastic modern lighting.
