Ingo Maurer

In memory of the German designer who is one of the most important lighting designers of the 20th and 21st centuries of international stature, we dedicate a separate chapter in the auction to the work of Ingo Maurer.

His career as a lighting artist began in the 1960s with the idea of presenting a light bulb inside a light bulb. Matching the Pop Art movement of the time, this led to the creation of his first luminaire called ‘Bulb’ in 1966. From then on, the artist worked with innovative, humorous and extremely artistic approaches. Thus, his works have always been a pioneering instance for new developments in lighting design and continue to amaze viewers to this day.

100 years of Friedrich Becker

His works move – literally.

On May 25, 2022, Friedrich Becker would have turned 100. An anniversary year that will once again put the professor of the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences in the spotlight. Various exhibitions and festivities celebrate the father of kinetic jewelry, such as the exhibition ‘Friedrich Becker – Born to Play’ at the Goldschmiedehaus Hanau. We can offer you in the auction three objects by the artist, which are representative of his great passions – jewelry, sculpture, objects.
