Ingo Maurer: Pendulum

23 Oct - 16 Feb 2020 / Pinakothek der Moderne, Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum, Munich, DE

At the center of the Rotunda of the museum can be seen a typical installation of Ingo Mauer. The concept of pendulums – be they suspended lamps or swinging metal ellipsoids – is a central feature of Ingo Maurer’s oeuvre that enabled him to mobilize light using simple means. Since time immemorial people have been fascinated by the archaic shape of the egg and its perfect design. The swinging pendulum is one of nature’s physical phenomena that already provided orientation to the Ancient Egyptians.
