A revolutionary new product, Philips Luminous Textile with Kvadrat Soft Cells lets you enhance your interiors with light and texture

Co-developed by Philips lighting and Kvadrat Soft Cells,  Philips Luminous Textile with Kvadrat Soft Cells utilses a combination of multi-coloured LEDs within textile panels. The size, number and arrangement of panels can be decided on by the user, and there's an array of white and coloured Kvadrat textiles with different weaves to choose from.

The product has a number of applications, such as improving the cold impersonality of the modern offices, corridors and meeting areas. In the retail and hospitality industries the luminous textile can create a warm and pleasant atmosphere in locations such as bars, hotel lobbies or airport lounges.

Luminous textile can bring vitality to any space by arranging in a variety of ways, from a giant concept wall, to scattered single block screens. Its soundproofing characteristic can also reduce spatial noise.

Kvadrat Soft Cells provides Philips with customised Soft Cell panels per individual project, and LED strips are mounted on the acoustic foam at a Philips factory. Attached to each multicoloured LED is a chip that controls the light source, and an integrated driver box holds the necessary electronics. The individual LEDs are managed by this driver box, where video content can be stored or into which it can be streamed.

Installing the panel and connecting the system require only a power supply and an internet cable. Any smartphone or computer can be used to manage the driver box. In collaboration with various media designers, Philips develops video content that is easy to download from a dedicated website, and customised content can be easily developed.
