Enlightening Chairs that Radiate Light
Great people wear a halo around them and those enlightened ones radiate light around them – literally and figuratively. But have you heard of any piece of furniture radiating light? If you haven’t, see and believe Interlux chairs. The Interlux chair literally lights up the room. Reminiscent of American minimalist artist Dan Flavin’s fluorescent light sculptures, this unique chair literally lights up the room. Manfred Kielnhofer plays with fluorescent light and transparent tubes that change color, creating an ethereal atmosphere in our rooms.
The chair is a composition of unique long neon lighting contained in transparent tubes placed horizontally. A wonderful example of what one can do with commercially available fluorescent light fixtures. They are also available in environment-friendly paper tubes. Manfred Kielnhofer was born in Haslach an der Mühl,Austria. He is self-taught and works with many different mediums, including, painting, film, photography, installation, performance and sculpture. His work concerns the human figure, and its different forms and movements, focusing mainly on the peculiarities of human nature. He uses the human form as a tool, either on a canvas or in a sculpture.
