Certainly one of the most famous German designers is Ingo Maurer, who has regularly received applause with his fanciful works from design enthusiasts in the whole world since 1966. So the Ingo Maurer Zettel’z belongs to the one of the most acclaimed lighting concepts in the work of the Munich designer. It comes in different forms: Ingo Maurer Zettel‘z 5, Ingo Maurer Zettel´z 6, and some limited edition designs of Zettel’z light.
Ingo Maurer Zettel’z – Artful crowd of paper as light sources
At first sight, the pendant light Ingo Maurer Zettel‘z 5, designed in 1997, leaves you rubbing your eyes. The unusual lamp wears a very special “dress”: 31 DIN A5 sheets of ingeniously printed Japan paper, artfully arranged around light source, which is covered by a satined glass cylinder, and additional 49 sheets of Japan paper, this times plain, give the Ingo Maurer Zettel pendant light its distinctive look. So you can give free rein to your thoughts and phantasy and write or paint whatever you want. Afterwards, your living room will shine in brightness like no other one.
Equal in its visual impact, the somewhat smaller Ingo Maurer Zettel´z 6, designed in 1998, presents itself as a real eye catcher as well. The pendant light offers 40 sheet of printed and 40 sheets of unprinted DIN A6 format Japan paper. Due to its unusual design, this interesting design object lends living and dining room added value in a never seen before way and submerges dining and coffee tables in atmospheric zone lighting. Thanks to a second illuminant, the Zettel’z 6 has enough luminous intensity to act as a general lighting as well.
The Bang Boom! Zettel’z, a limited special edition designed by Ingo Maurer and Team 2010, is unrivalled in terms of extravaganza in this collection. This exciting pendant light boasts cartoon images or words in cartoon style. You just have to fulfill the playful task to arrange the slips according your liking.
Zettel’z Munari, designed by Ingo Maurer and Team in 2018, is a new limited edition of Zettel’z 5. With the illustrated alphabet by Bruno Munari, it is a perfect luminaire for rooms where children live, to be surrounded by creativity and the curiosity to explore language and learning. However, with its unique beauty, the limited edition is a pleasure for all ages.
In Zettel’z Laughing Buddha, designed by Ingo Maurer and Team in 2018, Ingo Maurer again expresses his fascination with Chinese porcelain figures, which he also used for special versions of Porca Miseria. The Laughing Buddha figures were photographed in Munich for this limited edition of 200 pieces.
