Electro Luminescent Vases by Voon Wong and Benson Saw
How bad ass are these items? Okay, it’s maybe a bit hard to tell what these are at first glance, so I’ll add a bit of description: These are vases where the designers have woven an electro luminescent (EL) wire around a ceramic vessel. EL wire is a low light emitting wire used in the making of signage, traditionally. However, Wong and Saw, have skillfully adapted the wire to the shape of a vase. I must admit, when I saw this project I was surprised that the concept hadn’t passed my way before since it was originally conceived in 2002. When I found this out, it made me wonder if anyone else was experimenting with this EL wire, and why I hadn’t seen more design objects experiment with the material. If any of you know where I can get some of this, and what it’s properties are, it would be greatly appreciated.
