Ingo Maurer Bulb table lamp

Bulblamp We like cool lighting here at Retro to Go, and I really like this quirky Bulb table lamp orignally designed by Ingo Maurer in 1966.

Innovative at the time and still witty, it is made from mouth-blown crystal glass on a polished chrome-plated base. It is small enough to fit on your desk or coffee table at 20x30cm, and is sure to raise a smile.

The downside is that it costs £615 for a bit of design history, but at least you can be sure that not everyone will have one. As the man himself says: "I have always been fascinated by the light bulb because it is the perfect meeting of industry and poetry. The bulb is my inspiration,".

Find out more and order one on the Conran website.
