Néon, who’s afraid of red, yellow and blue? at la maison rouge

French physicist and chemist Georges Claude developed the first neon tube in 1912, exactly one century ago. He unveiled his invention publicly at the Paris World Fair. A few years later, Claude filed a patent in the United States and, in 1923, sold his first two neon signs—reading ‘Packard’—to a car dealership. The rest is history…

The exhibition is on at La Maison Rouse until 20 May 2012. Looks amazing.
