New video presenting Light.Touch.Matters

A new video is made that introduces the EU-funded project Light.Touch.Matters, in which designers and material researchers have joined forces to develop a completely new generation of smart materials that can sense touch and respond with luminescence. The base technologies are novel piezo plastics and flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Being thin, flexible and formable, these ‘light touch materials’ promise to revolutionize product design by integrating luminescence and touch in such...

First costumes prototypes for the “100 Dancers” project

Trials of the first prototype for the interactive costumes to be created for the “100-Dancers” festival (July 28t-august 5th). Light patterns react to speed and rotation and will be explored by the dancers. Exchange students from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation (Coline Fontaine, Delphine Piault, Marlene Fisher, Zeynep Sen, Nina Wester) are collaborating on that project…More to come !
