Golden Ribbon

Golden Ribbon
Private villa, 2006
In 1994, Ingo Maurer created the first Golden Ribbon, an exceptional lighting object. Each of the few existing "Golden Ribbons" has its unique expression and shape.
Constructed from two lengths of metal, it is formed and gold-plated by hand. Within the body, there are light sources that emit light through openings. The light makes the surface glow, while various grades of brightness highlight the flowing shape of the ribbon.

​Ingo Maurer created the first "Golden Ribbon" in 1994 for the Performing Arts Center in Tel Aviv.



Also on display are working scale models, which have been used by Ingo Maurer and his team in the making of the ribbons. These models illustrate the creative process and the diversity of the ribbons.
