The skyline of Pittsburgh has many visual icons. PPG Place, the Gulf Tower and the Duquesne Incline, to name a few, give the city an instantaneous identity, making it recognizable by visitors and native Pittsburghers alike. But soon, there will be an artistic and innovative addition to Pittsburgh’s cityscape.

The Mattress Factory has commissioned Berlin-based artist Hans Peter Kuhn to install a lighted sculpture on the roof of its six story building on Pittsburgh’s Northside. The sculpture, titled Acupuncture, will be made utilizing six cold-cathode light bars (averaging 100 feet in length) that seemingly pierce through the building’s exterior walls and roof.
