Yves Behar is a highly respected industrial designer, as well as a gifted sculptor. This magical sculpture is made of formed aluminum, with an electroluminescent film on the inner surface. When this is illuminated, it emits a magical glow, and when you step through it, you almost expect to emerge in another dimension. its dramatic size and elegant form are beautiful and very modern.
Unfortunately, this piece is just about impossible to capture well in a photograph – the inner film is not orange, but a pale pink.
Behar designed four prototypes for this sculpture, and this is the only one available on the market. It was exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in fuesproject, design series 2, in March of 2004.
