DOUBLE TAKE: IT’S SCULPTURE, IT’S LIGHTING, IT’S TWO-WAY NEWS

Oct 15, 1970

Tovibulbs and Tovitubes introduce a new era in lighting
Tovi lights when off, resemble polished spheres or tubes of metal. When turned on, they present a dazzling, but glare-tree, pattern of light.

It’s sculpture, it’s lighting, it’s two-way news Chromium-steel-gold light bulbs? A polished metal sculpture that turns on? It’s the greatest decorating excitement in years. Turn on a cocktail table and you turn on a room. Cover a ceiling in silver treillage that switches to lime or white or raspberry light and let your fantasy roam free. It begins with the Tovibulb and the Tovitube. Their micro-thin metal coatings inside glass are the magic. For all specifics and prices, turn to page 128.
