Ingo Maurer Lucellino Designer Emulation Kit — Now everyone can afford to own a lighting classic

1heheghe

Mark McKenna has created Designer Emulation Kits (DEK) which recreate, on a miniature scale, classic modern lighting fixtures.

They're ingeniously constructed like old–fashioned model airplane kits, with the individual parts being attached to a frame via twist–and–break struts.

Each little light has an LED and is powered by a standard 9V battery which will illuminate the fixture for up to 160 hours.

Many questions you might have and others that won't occur to you are answered here.

the Designer Emulation Kit website notes, "DEK 1 was inspired by Ingo Maurer's Lucellino [just below].

Why make it the first in the series? The originator of DEK's, Mark McKenna, took his first professional job as a member of the Ingo Maurer team. It is only fitting to give props to the master."

Three more emulations — Achille Castiglioni's Arco (DEK 2 – below);
