Commenced in 1957, Nicolas Schöffer’s series of works called Lux were his first luminous sculptures with mobile light effects. In tandem, the artist developed his theory of “lumino-dynamism”. Nine years later, he introduced the Lumino, a device displaying slow-moving coloured light effects, and the first work of art destined to be mass produced (by Philips). This is the system at work in the sculpture/visual polychrome structure shown here.
