Ingo Maurer, lighting designer extraordinaire, has produced more than 120 lamps and lighting systems in the course of his prolific career. His creations have famously illuminated private houses, public spaces, and headline-grabbing events. If you've never passed through Munich's Westfriedhof subway station and you missed Issey Miyake's 1999 fashion show in Paris, you can check out Maurer's extensive and inventive oeuvre as presented in "Ingo Maurer– Light–Reaching for the Moon" at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Besides examples of the master's fixtures, highlights include rare prototypes, models, photos, and films documenting his projects, plus specially created installations.
