LUME
by Admin1 / September 3, 2004

LED embedded fabric.
Practical ambient lighting. "LUME is a new lightweight, LED embedded fabric that offers safe, energy efficient light in a versatile form factor. Delivering broad, even light, from an ultra-thin and flexible source, LUME is a true illumination replacement. While providing all the environmental and cost benefits of high-brightness LEDs, LUME is an opportunity for designers, product developers and architects to conceive of lighting in new ways.". Apparently, LUME fabrics are very durable, run relatively cool and can be manipulated in innumerable ways AND they're programmable. Time to boot up the drapes and the sofa.

DESIGNERS: Talia Dorsey, Joshua Dorsey, Mathew Laibowitz, Eran Plonski
