Monument for a Bulb is an intriguing small lighting object that looks like a tiny maquette for a huge monument. The sculptural lighting fixture is part of the I Ricchi Povery collection by Ingo Maurer, so well known for its whimsical designs. You may remember Toto and Bzzzz we featured last year.
Monument for a Bulb features eight human figures standing on a dark metal plate. The frosted bulb hovers horizontally, propped up by simple brass. Each of the human figures is cast in nickel silver and fixed on the plate, creating a playful sculptural composition.
