Invented in the 1600’s, neon signs are a staple of any big metropolis, but it definitely doesn’t make as much of an impact anywhere else as it does in Hong Kong. Notoriously cramped and dense, space is very rare. The moment you look up, your senses are bombarded with visual overstimulation from never-ending neon lights. But in such a populated and consumerist-driven city, neon plays a huge role in attracting attention. This has essentially made neon lights and signs a trademark of Hong Kong. So in this edition of HYPEBEAST Process, we take you through how these big and bright signs are made. From forming the glass tube to filling it with gas and mercury, check out the video and learn how we light up big cities with bright lights.
