About this design preview

Georges Claude, sometimes referred to as ‘the Edison of France’, developed a series of long glass tubes filled with rarefied neon gas, which, when electrified, would glow in bright colours. This design is inspired by the neon signs in New York’s Times Square, an iconic sight, unimaginable without Claude’s inventions.
