Luminex® Fabric

January 4, 2008


Luminex® is a new fabric that can emit its own light. It is created with threads of various types and natures that can illuminate in different colors. This is possible thanks to integration of luminous fibers into the fabric, giving it its own brilliance.

Luminex® fabrics are pliable. They can be custom-tailored for a variety of applications allowing for great design flexibility. Options can be customized varying shape, size, thickness, material finish, density of illumination, color, pattern, programmability.

Litracon™ presents the phenomenon of light transmitting concrete in the form of a widely applicable new building material.
Thousands of optical glass fibres form a matrix and run parallel to each other between the two main surfaces of each block. Due to the small size of the fibres, they blend into concrete becoming a component of the material like small pieces of aggregate. Because of their parallel position, the light-information on the brighter side of such a wall appears unchanged on the darker side. The most interesting form of this phenomenon is probably the sharp display of shadows on the opposing side of the wall. Moreover, the colour of the light also remains the same.
You don’t need x-ray vision to see through this wall… I love it… imagine the possibilities.

In case you did not get enough attention in the Pub or the back alley… or maybe you just felt like being brighter than the christmas tree… This fibre optic clothes “can be powered either by a disposable or rechargeable battery, or by a small mains transformer (if you are the christmas tree)”
