After her first experience in creating and using neon sign for the design of an interior space, architect Jora Kasapi comes up with an article where she advises any architect or interior designer to use this element in its maximum potential.
From the architect. Basically, the way neon tube lighting is created is very intriguing and consists of using a glass tube which should be heated and shaped on certain points by hand, following a specific design which is important to be printed as a reference model, connected to electrodes (which will provide electrical discharge) on its two extremes, a specific device is used to extract all the air inside, leaving only vacuum. After the tube is filled with Neon, Argan, or another gas depending on the color desired and then for a softer lighting effect, the glass tube is bombarded.
