The impressive Pierre ou Paul S pendant light was designed by Ingo Maurer and his manufacturing team in 1996.

The pendant light is perfect for larger spaces such as lofts, large homes, restaurants, hotels, etc.

This S variant has only one counterweight and cannot be tilted.

The Pierre ou Paul (non-"S" model) has three counter weights which allow its inclination and height to be adjusted freely. This way a whole room, or pieces of furniture or art can be staged directly.

Ingo Maurer was born in 1932 on the island of Reichenau in Lake Constance, Germany. Ingo Maurer trained as a typographer and subsequently studied graphic design in Switzerland and in Munich. In 1960 he moved to the USA, where he worked as a designer for various clients including IBM. In 1966, having returned to Germany three years previously, he set up his own company, Design M, in Munich, to make and market his own lighting designs, the first of which was the celebrated "Bulb", a Pop Art lamp within a lamp. In the 1960s and 1970s Maurer made a name for himself with unusual designs and appearances at trade fairs. "Bulb" won a place in the MoMA design collection as early as 1969. Since the early 1980s, Maurer works with a team of younger designers and developers.

In 1989 the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain in Jouy-en-Josas staged the exhibition Ingo Maurer: Lumière Hasard Réflexion, which gave the designer his first opportunity to create lighting installations of a non-commercial nature. In the same year he also had a retrospective in the city then known as Leningrad. Since then, his designs - whether on commissions or mass-produced lamps from his ordinary collection - have been shown all over the world in many exhibitions.

Since the mid-1990s Maurer has increasingly been exploiting the unique aesthetic effects of LEDs and technical components such as printed circuit boards.
In 2010 Ingo Maurer received the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany and in 2011 he wins the Compasso d’Oro for his entire career.

Ingo Maurer was born on the island of Reichenau in the Lake of Constance, Germany. After an apprenticeship as a typesetter, Maurer studied graphic design in Munich then moved to the U.S. as a freelance graphic designer. In 1963, he moved back to Germany and opened his own studio named Design M where he developed and manufactured lighting concepts and systems. In 1973, Design M became and still is Ingo Maurer Lighting GmbH.

From his first design, simply titled "Bulb", which can now be seen in the permanent collection at MoMA in New York, Ingo Maurer has always been synonymous with originality, creativity and a combination of quirkiness and romanticism. While aesthetics do play a huge role in the creative process, the company has also consistently managed to stay one step ahead of the industry by quickly embracing and integrating new technologies to their creations.

Besides the design of lamps for serial production, Maurer creates and plans lighting installations for public or private spaces. In 2006, he created lighting objects and installations for the interior of the Atomium in Brussels.

Maurer’s designs reflect the past and have a story to tell. Some designs are strictly minimalist and others have anecdotal embellishment. This "poet of light" has been ranked amongst the most important product designers internationally for many years.
