Lightconducting Plastics

A range of light and colour-sensitive materials has been developed by embedding a matrix of light-conducting plastic channels into a substrate of either concrete or acrylic polymer. Each of the light-conducting channels, which operate like fibre-optics, gathers light or shadow from one end and transfers it to the other end creating scintillation or darkening respectively. Overall this creates an optical rippling effect as an object or light passes over the surface. The material, according to the substrate, can be used as floor tiles, walls, partitions, facades or tabletop surfaces. In each case the surface is seen to respond to object movement or changes in light intensity and colour. Units may be individual tiles or larger panels and are available in a range of standard or custom colours.
