Ingo Maurer on What We Do Counts:

“Comics have become an important part of our lifes. Witty and cheerful, humorous and last but not least very inspiring. I love speech bubbles. So I thought, why not turn a speech bubble into a desk lamp? But with a strong message which concerns us all: "What we do counts."


In my work there always has been a lot of humour. This desk lamp - or Arbeitslampe as we call it - is a serious joke: makes good light, moves

anywhere you want it, very functional and last but not least inspiring - what we do counts.

Big thanks to my fantastic team for helping me to make this lamp come true.”
