LED light transmissive carpets to provide information, direction, inspiration
These LED light emitting carpets will provide many benefits in the areas of information, direction, inspiration and safety, such as: Guiding people around buildings, including safety exits and route. Enhancing the ambiance and atmosphere of the interior of buildings combining lighting with design and colour. Or helping to de-clutter spaces by making information visible only when needed
The solution is designed for high traffic areas and comes in different colors, shapes and sizes – enabling highly flexible application of the new technology.
The partnership is an agreement to work exclusively together in developing the markets in EMEA. In addition to this, a joint development agreement has been signed focusing on a seamless integration of this solution into new and existing buildings. The product name will be revealed in 2014 as part of the full go-to-market launch, but Philips and Desso are already working on pilot projects in key markets.
Combining the many benefits of Desso’s carpet, such as improved indoor air quality, acoustics and comfort with the benefits of Philips’ LED lighting, this innovation reflects Philips and Desso’s common goal to improve people’s lives, whilst bringing a new level of design freedom to architects, designers and end-users.
