There’s been so much amazing stuff on display at the London Design Festival we’ve had a hard time covering all of it. One real stand-out of design innovation is Soner Ozenc’s electroluminescent fabric gadgetry, spotted at this year’s Designersblock by the Core77 crew. Ozenc’s Time Curtain is a transparent piece of hanging fabric that displays the time in elecroluminescent LED-style numbers.
While we’re not sure that a room partition is the most useful application of this cool technology, we can imagine some great practical applications to this innovative luminescent fabric: how about light-up window curtains and illuminating wallpaper?
Soner Ozenc is a London-based Turkish industrial designer and recent Central Saint Martins grad who made blog headlines last year with his iconoclastic LED prayer mat. The rising design star has a lot of other cool soft-gadget designs in the works, so keep an eye on him.
