“The Neon Desk Light” is a freestanding light sculpture made of free-formed borosilicate glass tubing. “I am using much bigger tube diameters and wall thicknesses to create shapes which couldn’t be achieved in conventional neon making,” says Jochen Holz. The forms play with the light emitted by the different rare gases; the undulating tube subtly manipulates the light, softening and intensifying it in turns. There are no coatings or filaments, just the pure light radiating from within the tube.
