The 24 Karat Blue collection was designed by Eric Schmid for Ingo Maurer in 2005.
The striking diffusers are made of real gold leaf sealed and protected in a layer of plastic. They are made by hand in a unique process, where the gold leaf is beaten to a thickness of 1/10.000mm thickness, corresponding to 1.000 atomic layers. This allows short-wave blue light to pass through the molecules to the outside while reflecting a golden tone on the inside. Therefore the inner surface of the diffuser appears gold when lit, whereas the outer surface shimmers in a mysterious blue.
Each diffuser each has four holes, with which they can be suspended on rods in various angles. The designer invites you to be part of the creative process to create your very own custom piece.
