Remember the flicker of the neon sign outside your favourite childhood Chinese restaurant? The bold glimmer from the exterior lights of an old theatre? The glow of Tokyo back-alley? Well, Fast Life Neons have harnessed the vintage charm of neon lighting to combine art, light and function, creating unique decorative pieces for the modern era.
Fast Life Neons is the brainchild of graphic designer, Jacob Paramuk and product designer, Leonard Velich, combining their skills to create handcrafted products that serve as both functional lighting as well as ornamental art installations for either home and commercial settings.
With visually striking creations paying homage to the dying art, their aesthetic is nostalgic with a chic modern edge. When speaking of the Fast life brand ethos Velich tell us “Fast Life is mostly about art and design it also represents a lifestyle that most of us can relate to at some point of our lives. A life on the edge. The story behind every design reflects this philosophy of “fast life” where the influences come from various walks of life where living on the edge is the norm”.
The Fast Life Neon project that has spanned two and half years, is now launching to the Australian public at the “For Your Viewing Pleasure” exhibition at the M2 gallery in Surry Hills Sydney.
