comes as the second carpet of the “LightForRugs” project that was published in this year's edition of Maison et Objet
Objet in Paris. These light rugs bring innovative and pioneering technology to Ferreira de Sá, by varying the intensity, visual effect and color in their filaments.
The integration of sensory and lighting systems generates unique light effects that will revolutionize the way of interacting with a rug.
Through touch it is possible to choose the color, intensity and visual effects of the rug whenever you want. This project is the culmination of a lot of research and investment on the part of Ferreira de Sá in order to create unique pieces.
The first carpet of this project, Almond Blossoms
, already had a success at Decorex 2019
and now Avant-Gardiste
promises to raise the bar even more. “LightForRugs” is another project included in the innovative vision by Ferreira de Sá and a proof that everything is possible to develop without limits when there is creativity.
In order to respond to the advancement of technology, this challenge was accomplished through I&D in new materials, such as light conductors, LEDs, electroluminescent devices, functional films, touch sensors and electronic devices.
With the knowledge and help from CeNTI (Centre of Nanotechnology and Smart Materials), Ferreira de Sá Rugs hopes to develop new materials and processes for the integration of electronic systems, which lead to the continuous improvement of this project.
