Floatation Suspension

Light that's light as air. The Ingo Maurer Floatation Suspension was originally designed by Maurer in 1980, featuring three crinkled Japanese paper shades nested within each other to create a soft, ethereal diffusal of light throughout a space. Height is adjustable via the Red-enameled iron ring that acts as a counterweight. Available in three sizes.

For more than 40 years Ingo Maurer has created somewhat irreverent and thought-provoking designs in a method that is more exo-modern than contemporary. These experimentalist collections enliven fashion runways, monuments and private homes, giving Ingo Maurer lighting a name that resounds in the minds of the design-forward.

The Ingo Maurer Floatation Suspension is available with the following:

  • 3 White Japanese paper shades
  • Round, White ceiling canopy with US adapter plate
  • Red-enameled iron ring counter weight
  • Adjustable height
  • 78.7" thin metal cables
  • Not UL/ETL Listed
  • Made in Germany
  • Designed by Ingo Maurer, 1980
  • Size: Large, Medium, or Small.
Please Note:
The Floatation Suspension paper is intentionally crinkled. This material reacts to fluctuations in humidity. Therefore, changes in the rigidity of the shades cannot be prevented. This lamp is not suited for environments with high humidity.

  • Large option utilizes two 60 Watt 125 Volt Type E27 Incandescent lamps (not included).
  • Medium option utilizes two 40 Watt 125 Volt Type E27 Incandescent lamps (not included).
  • Small option utilizes one 100 Watt 125 Volt Type E27 Incandescent lamp (not included).
This item usually ships in 8-10 weeks.
