George Kovacs 1928 – 2007

George Kovacs passed away Wednesday, June 20th during the Dallas June Market.
I missed my semi-annual chat with this lighting icon, who was always an inspiration.

Not only did he shape modern American lighting design, creating contemporary pieces with a retro flavor, but he always did it with a sparkle and his very own sense of humor.
I just have to think of the photo shoot of his collection of contemporary lighting with George in every photo – dressed as an angel! I still have the bobble-head figurine he gave me of George, the Angel.
