Is LED Lighting the Future?

January 23, 2014

What's next for LED? How about lighted LED carpeting to help you find your way?


Two Dutch-based companies, Phillips Lighting and carpet maker Desso, have announced a partnership to revolutionize the modern office space. The companies plan to develop the carpet for offices, hotels, conference centers and other public places.


So, instead of an illuminated Exit sign above the door, imagine being guided to the exit by lighting from the carpet beneath your feet.


In a joint announcement posted on the official Desso website, Philips Lighting Marketing and Sales Director Ed Huibers explains:


“This light transmissive carpet solution is designed to engage directly with people’s senses and the eyes’ natural inclination to seek out light. The technology takes advantage of people’s tendency to be guided by the floor when moving through and interacting with space. It brings information, direction, inspiration and safety via the carpet you walk on.”


The companies believe that the lighting will only be displayed when needed to avoid clutter. They anticipate that light emitting LED carpet may be available as soon as next year.
