At Salone Internazional del Mobile’s Euroluce  in Milan, designers fearsomely competed for attention by decking out their booths with high-tech light displays. But the one that caught our eye and held our attention was a series of innovative light structures from the always creative Ingo Maurer . And this year, Mr. Maurer’s fixtures were particularly green, integrating an array of everyday and reused objects including toothpaste tubes. Leave it to him to make Colgate beautiful.

The German designer and his studio exhibited his one-offs, constructed with domestic, everyday objects. With this latest series of works, Maurer  and his team prove that the ordinary can be transformed into something elegant.
Living Vegas Light  was inspired by the neon-coated landscape of the world famous gambling paradise.
Domestic wallpaper is revitalized with the use of LEDs in Maurer’s ‘Rose, Rose on the wall,’  a lighting project comprised of 900 custom-made circuit boards.
Thousand and One Lights  is a giant circuit board embedded with LEDs to create the illusion of a star-studded night.
Comprised of stacked cubes made from gold, brass, steel and plastic figurines, the bizarre but beautiful lighting structure Moon over Cuba  harbors a strange narrative within its cagey construction.
