Soner Ozenc, Electroluminescent fabric, Time Clock, LED Prayer Mat, Designers Block, London Design Festival, [1]

There’s been so much amazing stuff on display at the London Design Festival [2] we’ve had a hard time covering all of it. One real stand-out of design innovation is Soner Ozenc’s [3] electroluminescent fabric gadgetry, spotted at this year’s Designersblock [4] by the Core77 crew. [5] 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 [3] 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.
