Ingo Maurer Biography
Ingo Maurer was born in 1932 in Reichenau Germany as the son of a fisherman. He completed his training as a typographer in Switzerland and Germany. Following his 4 year graphic studies from 1954 to 1958 in Munich, he emigrated to the USA in 1960, and worked as a freelance designer in both New York and San Francisco. In 1963 he returned to Munich Germany and founded the 'DESIGN M' studio in 1966. His first lamp received the name 'Bulb' and became an icon of modern design. In the late 1960s, husband and wife team, Dorothee Becker and Ingo Maurer created Uten.Silo; a multi-pocketed and very practical
wall organizer which also became a huge hit. Both Bulb Uten.Silo are still available through Stardust.
