Inspired by the neon works of artists like Dan Flavin, London lighting design firm Minimalux has created a simple box-shaped lamp that creates the look of neon lighting – long thin slits of light – without that buzzing sound that's become the hallmark of red-light districts the world over.
The Neon Light lamps are made from a single piece of thin steel that's been folded into a box, with thin slits cut into every edge to let light from a bulb inside bleed through.
Given their £125-a-block price tag, the lamps are designed to serve more as an art piece that puts form over function – you're not going to rely on one to properly illuminate a room. But they do come in your choice of one of four colours including yellow, mint, white and turquoise to help them blend into your decor. [Luminaire via Better Living Through Design]
