This whimsical Don Quixote Table Lamp / Wall Lamp was designed for the German label Ingo Maurer.
The eponymous founder of the Munich-based Ingo Maurer company revolutionised the lighting industry with his first creation The Bulb Lamp in 1966. Together with his later Lucellino Lamp, the Bulb represented a homage to Edison's light bulb. Visits to Japan inspired the use of rice paper and bamboo in his designs for models such as the Maru and Knitterling suspension lamps. Maurer was also an early adopter of LED lighting and helped make the most of the new technology.
The Don Quixote Table Lamp / Wall Lamp is a real work of art along with being a versatile and functional lighting solution. The hat-shaped shade takes the form of the hat of Cervantes' rueful knight. The lamp is extremely flexible and can be twisted, turned or bent to direct the beam as required. Fashioned from steel, aluminium and plastic, the lamp measures 35cm in length and has a base diameter of 35cm. The Don Quixote Table Lamp / Wall Lamp is a striking centrepiece in any home and serves as effective task and ambient lighting.
