Ingo Maurer Egg

Ingo Maurer Egg

When my  husband and I visited Ingo Maurer this year we got to admire their new showroom. A beautiful, generous space had replaced the maze of offices, production and shipping areas.

All the fixtures now have the space they need to stand out.
One fixture I had never seen before. Well, no wonder, it is not yet in production and was going to be exhibited in Milan shortly after our visit.

Ingo Maurer has given this description of his fascination with the shape of the egg.

‘The egg shape, perfect and beautiful, is a recurring element in my work. In fact, there’s a direct connection to Milan: the egg in Piero Della Francesca’s Montefeltro altarpiece, belonging to the Pinacoteca di Brera, holds a particular fascination for me. However, for me the egg had to be flawed: it is broken, and light emerges from the cracks.’
