We discovered Loop.ph [2] last week with their beautiful BioWall [3], and now we can’t get enough of the British design duo. CSM research fellow Rachel Wingfield [4] and artist Mathias Gmachl [5] collaborate to develop new interactive surfaces, utilizing radiant light, photoluminescence, and organic processes in their designs. Their impressive portfolio is filled with items I covet for my house, including the BioWall [3], light-reactive blinds, electroluminescent wallpaper [6], a light alarm-clock, and a table that records your movements.

Loop.ph’s work aims to provide a more intuitive understanding of the natural environment, from day-night cycles to power consumption, investigationg physiological effects of light and colour on the human body. They are currently developing textile-based ambient displays for the home with active textiles that visualise information through dynamic pattern and colour change.
