Ingo Maurer Floatation® Modern (Japanese-Inspired) Paper Lamp Shade Suspension Light with 3 Nested Shades. Ingo Maurer's Floatation (aka flotation) was inspired by Shoji lamps (the Japanese rice paper hanging lanterns). The uniquely beautiful Floatation Lamp is a sensation to behold. German lighting prodigy Ingo Maurer's is often called "a poet of light". Able to infuse a simple object like a light bulb for example with a poetic exploration of a conceptual theme, German lighting prodigy Ingo Maurer's work bridges art and function. The Floatation Lamp by Ingo Maurer is a true classic and a fine example of Ingo Maurer's artistry. Ingo Maurer's Floatation is composed of three crinkled Japanese paper shades which are suspended from thin metal cables. The Japanese paper are shades nested within each other to create a soft, ethereal diffusion of light throughout a space. The height of Floatation can be adjusted with a red enameled iron ring, which serves as a counterweight. The white lacquered ceiling canopy installs flush to the ceiling. In a world of throwaways and built-in obsolescence, Ingo Maurer remains steadfast in their commitment to singular design and production by hand. Each Ingo Maurer Floatation Lamp is made by craftsmen at the Ingo Maurer workshop in Germany. Available in three sizes and two cord lengths (either 6.6 feet for standard ceiling heights or 14.8 feet for taller ceilings).
Floatation by Ingo Maurer is one of our finest light fixtures. Ingo Maurer's fascinating Floatation light sculpture captures the imagination and is uniquely different. Floatation owes its gently design to the use of Japanese paper, which, as an intended design element has wrinkles. Floatation puts out a gentle diffused light which intensifies its beautiful impression. Due to its filigree appearance and the sensitive Japanese paper materials, it is not suitable for rooms with high humidity or when installed in close proximity to a ceiling fan. Do not install under a ceiling vent/duct. Floatation by Ingo Maurer uses regular incandescent or screw-in CFL light bulbs (included). Floatation is made by Ingo Maurer in Germany.
