In the Mood

August 26, 2011

Wallpaper and painted walls are so last decade! Dutch Royal Philips Electronics last week announced a partnership with Danish Kvadrat Soft Cells to create wall coverings that not only absorb sound but emit light as well. Article from Marquette Turner.com

By integrating Philips’ addressable and multicolored LEDs into Kvadrat’s panels — which are constructed from fabric stretched over an aluminum frame — the two will give architects, interior designers and lighting specialists a whole new world of opportunities.

Targeted particularly at retail and hospitality providers, the resulting “luminous textiles” will create a “mood wall” that not only absorb sound but also enhance the ambiance via the display of light and dynamic visual content. Soft, diffused light will create an almost “dreamlike” quality suitable for settings ranging from reception areas and restaurants to hotels and airport lounges, Philips says, and users can either draw from the technology’s standard content portfolio or choose branded or other content of their own.
