Ingo Maurer Bulb table lamp
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,".
