The Munich-based designer, creator for 'Monument for a Bulb' available through, is a true renaissance man. With a body of work including his latest 'I Ricchi Poveri', Maurer has re-kindled a love for artistic lighting among musea, art collectors and design aficionados. Maurer, known for ground breaking lamp designs such as the space-age "Bulb" (1966), free-floating "Birdie's Nest" (2004) and candle-in-the-wind inspired "MY NEW FLAME" (2012) transforms a low-voltage halogen bulb into a table sculpture with eight small human figures of all walks of life, rich and poor, positioned in a museum-like setting.
