Philips [2] just teamed up Kvadrat Soft Cells [3] to unveil a brilliant new breed of luminous wallpaper that could forever change the field of mood lighting [4]. The beautiful textile combines sound-absorbing properties with LED lights [5] to cast a colorful low-energy glow over any interior space.

The walls are capable of displaying a broad range of LED color and they’d certainly tickle Willie Wonka’s fancy (although they’re not lickable!) The spectrum of light is perfect for creative environments for the hospitality industry [7] (think hotel lobbies and restaurants), adding ambience, décor and light with just one product.

The enveloped environment is further enhanced by Kvadrat’s unique sound absorbing [8] panels. Echoes are softened, and noise diffused thanks to the integrated soft cells. Restauranteers and lounge owners will benefit from a unified product that helps create customer intimacy through its visual and auditory characteristics.

The innovative textile is held in place with a lightweight aluminum frame that keeps it taut with the perfect amount of surface tension. The LED lights [9] are available in a wide palette of colors, allowing the user to change the mood or color of the room whenever desired.

We can already picture the illuminated walls [10] in the swankiest bars, restaurants, hotels and fashion forward homes. Redecorating would be a cinch since a room’s lighting and color [11] could be easily changed at a moment’s notice.
