Fragil

for  Galeria Magenta 52, in cooperation with Neonardo, Berlin, DMY 2008, Top 10 Jury´s Selection, 2008


More and more neonsigns dissapear from the streets – new technologies take their place. I tried to find the essence and the qualities of this old technology and to bring it into a design-context. Together with an experienced craftsman I had a look into manufacturing and production. Inspired by Neon-signs of the 80s, I designed fragil as 3-dimen–sional grafic. It can be used as a bookshelf and as a light – so it breaks the borders between grafic and furniture.
