Rolf Krüger Flush Mount

German, b. 1939

Known for his sleek, award-winning Space Age lighting, Rolf Krüger was an influential and important contributor to the advancement of German mid-century modern furniture design during the 1960s and 1970s.

Born in Hamburg in 1939, Krüger grew up in the maritime city of Husum, located near the German-Danish border. In 1959, he studied free and applied arts at the Heinrich Zernack School in Berlin before attending the Meisterschule für das Kunsthandwerk (now the Universität der Künste Berlin) from 1960 to 1964. There, he studied product design, painting, photography and commercial graphics and graduated with a diploma in design.

From 1964 to 1982, Krüger worked for several German lighting and furniture design firms, creating metal, glass and concrete products. For manufacturer Staff Leuchten, he designed bubble glass pendants (created with Japanese lighting designer Motoko Ishii), tube decorative wall lamps and the iconic Cross Oyster flush mount ceiling light, which was displayed in the exhibition stand of Mercedes-Benz at the 1970 Geneva International Motor Show. In 1968, Krüger collaborated with German industrial designer Dieter Witte to create a large wall panel version of the Cross Oyster light for Staff Leuchten.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Krüger worked with lighting manufacturer Heinz Neuhaus Leuchten to create several popular pieces like his cubic wall lights and brass tubular desk lamps. For furniture maker Paul Neuhaus Leuchten, Krüger designed his elegant, modernist double wall sconces. 

Throughout his design career, Krüger has received more than 30 awards, including multiple iF Design awards. His lighting pieces are in the collections of the Landesmuseen Schleswig-Holstein, the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, the Design Museum in Munich and the Kunstgewerbemuseum of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

Rolf Krüger for Staff Leuchten Set 124 Ceiling or Wall lights, Germany 1960s.
By Rolf Krüger, Staff Leuchten
Located in Almelo, NL
Rolf Krüger for Staff Leuchten set / 124 Ceiling or Wall lights, Germany 1960s. This set consists of 124 simple ceiling or wall lights created by Rolf Krüger and made by Staff in Germany during the 1960s. It is rare to find such a large quantity of these lights. The lights feature a simple cylindrical shape that transforms into a square base with a soft radius. The top of the upper end holds the contaminant visibly, making it perfect for mirror headlights to avoid direct glare. The assembly plate is integrated into the base plate. These lamps' unique feature is their ability to combine ceiling or wall sculptures. These lights are minimalistic, making them a statement piece in any room. They are in excellent condition without any damage, 100% original, fully functional, and come with an E27 socket. These lights are compatible with US/UK/ASIA standards and LED compatible. They have been cleaned, well-wired, in complete working order, and ready to use. Mid-century lighting is a sustainable option as it allows you to repurpose and give new life to existing products. Mid-century design lighting is often of high quality, built to last for several years. They also come with a rich history, and their signs of wear give a glimpse into the previous owner's life. - Set consists 124 fixtures. - Size: 10,5 x 10,5 cm. - Size: Height 12 cm. - Fitted with E27 sockets suitable for LED. - The lights are compatible with US/UK/ASIA standards. - Cleaned, well-wired, and ready to use Krüger designed a variety of metal, glass, and concrete products for the manufacturer, Staff Leuchten. Among his creations were bubble glass pendants (which he made in collaboration with Japanese lighting designer Motoko Ishii), tube decorative wall lamps, and the iconic Cross Oyster flush mount ceiling light, which was displayed in the exhibition stand of Mercedes-Benz at the 1970 Geneva International Motor Show. In 1968, Krüger worked with German industrial designer Dieter Witte to create a large wall panel version of the Cross Oyster light...
