When it first appeared, neon was considered a small miracle. This luminescent gas has given many businesses the opportunity to become more visible, it “lit” neighborhoods and businesses, eventually becoming a trademark of big cities “that never sleep”.
In the late 1890s, neon was extracted from the air along with helium, xenon and krypton, acquiring its name from the simple fact that it was something new, enigmatic and difficult to classify. Twenty years after its discovery, in late 1910, the French inventor Georges Claude found a way to introduce neon gas into tubes, for commercial use.
In 1923, in Los Angeles, the first neon sign illuminated the business of a car salesman. A century after the apparition of neon glass tubes, the first museum dedicated to this art was created in Los Angeles. Although the establishment of a museum would often be synonymous with the disappearance of exhibits from everyday use, it cannot be said the same thing about neon light, as it is expected for stay for many more years to come on the advertising signage market.
The main advantage of neon signs is that they are unique and affordable. For those who want a vintage look, neon is the ideal choice. With over 150 colors and infinite shapes, neon signs are different and special, and the LED has not yet reached the possibility of rendering such a wide variation of colors.
