Neon is a minimalist design created by London-based design company Minimalux. The table light is described as a “trick of the light” due to the luminescence of the bulb reflecting against the color of the steel to produce a replicated glow from the steel’s internal color. A conventional energy-saving bulb is all it takes to illuminate the colored internal surfaces.
A series of thin slits are formed around the perimeter of the folded steel box to create a strip light effect, which allows the light to be placed on any surface near the user without an overbearing amount of light.
The light is partially inspired by the works of American artist Dan Flavin, and are designed to fit neatly grouped together, or in various sculptural configurations. Neon is currently available on Minimalux’s website in Green, Pink, Yellow, Blue, or White. The light can be delivered with a European, United Kingdom, or United States plug.
