An enterprising young designer from the Netherlands has invented what has to be the ultimate in home illumination light emitting wallpaper.
Hmm, from looking at the pic above, I’m guessing he’s not too excited about it – Techradar goes on to explain some of the contruction elements –
“The base material is made from a commercially available product thatâ€™s manufactured by a number of companies. What I have done, though, is to apply that technology in a different way.”
Delving deeper, Samson revealed that the wallpaper is constructed by “sandwiching” a number of layers together that combine to produce light:
“The back layer is a silver-based solution that conducts electricity, while the layer above this contains phosphorous pigments that light up. On top of this is a flexible, transparent ITO conductor layer, with regular wallpaper placed on top to act as the final, outwardly visual layer,” he explained.
