"35 years ago on the waters of the Venice Lagoon I saw fishermen's nets covered in thousands of water droplets. And as they sparkled in the early morning sun I was inspired to create Lacrime del Pescatore--the Tears of the Fisherman." -Ingo Maurer. The Ingo Maurer Lacrime del Pescatore Ceiling Light recreates glistening fishermen's nets in three layers of nylon netting literally dripping in sparkling crystals. This singular structure hangs from the ceiling and is illuminated by a separately mounted wall light.
More experimentalist than anything else, German designer Ingo Maurer continues to surprise and exceed expectations. By using a wonderfully bizarre mix of found and created objects to create his capricious masterpieces, Ingo Maurer has become a pioneer in repurposed and environmentally enlightened lighting designs.
