Michal Cimala (CZ) → Signal Column

About project

The sculpture called Signal Column has been inspired by constructivist projects of the early 20th century. This temporary installation situated in the centre of Prague was made of affordable prefabricated elements in cooperation with the SOS dekorace company specializing in commercial light objects. Their elements were used to create this light sculpture dedicated to the Czech genius of light and electricity, František Křižík.
