The Kokoro  is a dramatic table lamp from the The MaMo Nouchies series by Ingo Maurer. Made of artful strong red paper, gracefully curved around a bar of stainless steel topped with a red silicone peak, Kokoro has a strong sculptural presence.




Our store dog Finnegan shows his appreciation for our customer service and fantastic products.

The “One from the Heart” lamp from Ingo Maurer got his attention! Might be the choice for his brand new dog house.



“7 Off the Wall’ is a a quirky new wall light from the Lucellino family by Ingo Maurer.
A  flok of winged bulbs are taking flight, creating this whimsical wall light that was recently introduced at Euroluce in Milan.

I just get so much inspiration during my visits to this fabulous showroom. This glossy lipstick red tabletop  is the perfect spot for a collection of these charming  table lamps.


UNICEF Ingo Maurer Snowflake

UNICEF Ingo Maurer Snowflake

Broadway Kids Care (BKC), the organization of theater kids for kids (and others), will perform festive holiday songs at the 2010 UNICEF Snowflake lighting ceremony on (Thursday, November 18) at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York City. This year’s event will also feature an appearance by HGTV’s Vern Yip, who will flip the switch to illuminate the magnificent UNICEF Snowflake, signifying the beginning of the gift-giving season across the globe.

The UNICEF Snowflake, donated by the Stonbely family, has become an iconic fixture in New York City during the holiday season. It was handcrafted by German lighting designer Ingo Maurer and is adorned with 16,000 Baccarat crystal prisms. At 23 feet in diameter, over 28 feet in height and weighing 3,300 pounds, the UNICEF Snowflake is the largest outdoor chandelier of its kind. The UNICEF Snowflake will be illuminated for the entire holiday season.

This incredible,  glittering new decoration was installed above Fifth Avenue in New York in November 2004.  This superb structure is made of stainless steel with 300 flashing high-power LEDmodules and more than ten thousand sparkling crystals.
Lighting designer Ingo Maurer was invited by the United States Fund to design the new UNICEF snowflake. The result is a fantastic sculpture in light, suspended 80 feet in the air.

Ingo Maurer Knueller

The Ingo Maurer floor lamp Knueller is a true hit.
The name of this unique floor lamp is, as is the case with so many names for Ingo Maurer fixtures, a play on words. A Knueller in German means a hit and at the same time the verb “knuellen” means crumbling something up.
The shade is a spherical cage that holds randomly crumbled tissue to diffuse the light. (No worries: It is designed so that there is no fire hazard!)
The Knueller floor lamp continues the interactive lighting concepts so often presented by Ingo Maurer by enabling the user to crumble tissue paper randomly and develop the look of their diffuser.



Ingo Maurer Kokoro

Ingo Maurer kokoro

The Kokoro by Ingo Maurer is a poetic, sensual creation that is so much more than just a table lamp.
Kokoro  is uniquely intriguing with its rich red color, gracefully formed swirl of handmade paper and the heart- shaped reflection  it casts onto the wall.
It is part of the MoMaNouchies series of lights by Ingo Maurer.
Ingo Maurer’s long-standing interest in materials and his passion for paper are combined with his admiration for Japanese art.

With the MaMo Nouchies series of lights , Ingo Maurer and Dagmar Mombach, who developed the technique for transforming the paper, pay homage to Isamu Noguchi, whose ideas were based on the traditional Japanese craft of Akari.
The name of the series comes from the first two letters of Maurer’s and Mombach’s last names, along with Nouchies, a pun on Noguchi.

In the Ingo Maurer showroom in Munich the Kokoro table lamp  is greeting you right as you enter, on a table with the guest book, setting the  stage for a great experience.



Ingo Maurer has for many years celebrated the simple beauty of the bare light bulb as the “perfect union of technology and poetry.”

Lucellino (1992), the bulb with angel’s wings made from goose feathers, is one of his most well-known pieces.

The  Lacrime del Pescatore by Ingo Maurer is here shown at Spazio Krizia in Milan.
What a spectacular installation!

I stumbled across the photo on the Chelliswilson  blog ( and ended up spending the next half hour on their site.

I have photographed the Lacrime del Pescatore myself several times and it’s really hard to gauge the size of it, probably because it stretches from corner to corner and each installation therefore looks different.

But here are the hard facts:

Three nets with 350 crystals. Top net: 56″ x 56″, middle net: 40″ x 40″, bottom net: 28″ x 28″. Overall height: 32″.
Weight: 7.7lbs
