Light by designer



Designer name: Hamburger, Peter
  1941 -
Peter Hamburger was born in 1941 in the USA and is an industrial designer and space planner. His light sculptures are in the permanent collection at The Museum of Modern Art. Hamburger took three years to develop his Crylicord lighting collection, introduced by Knoll in 1974. The lamp collection featured Knoll’s patented clear acrylic tubing, which functioned as a structural element while simultaneously concealing unsightly cords. Hamburger remembers: “I wanted to change the traditional lamp shape and combine the structure and function of a light unit into a single form.” Peter Hamburger designed for Knoll USA and Ingo Maurer.
