Luminous textile by Philips and Kvadrat Soft Cells

July 14th, 2011 by retail design blog

Philips just teamed up Kvadrat Soft Cells to unveil a brilliant new breed of luminous wallpaper that could forever change the field of mood lighting. The beautiful textile combines sound-absorbing properties with LED lights to cast a colorful low-energy glow over any interior space.
The walls are capable of displaying a broad range of LED color and they’d certainly tickle Willie Wonka’s fancy (although they’re not lickable!) The spectrum of light is perfect for creative environments for the hospitality industry (think hotel lobbies and restaurants), adding ambience, décor and light with just one product.

The enveloped environment is further enhanced by Kvadrat’s unique sound absorbing panels. Echoes are softened, and noise diffused thanks to the integrated soft cells. Restauranteers and lounge owners will benefit from a unified product that helps create customer intimacy through its visual and auditory characteristics.
The innovative textile is held in place with a lightweight aluminum frame that keeps it taut with the perfect amount of surface tension. The LED lights are available in a wide palette of colors, allowing the user to change the mood or color of the room whenever desired.
We can already picture the illuminated walls in the swankiest bars, restaurants, hotels and fashion forward homes. Redecorating would be a cinch since a room’s lighting and color could be easily changed at a moment’s notice.
