Woven textile mats made from flax and natural resins as raw materials are combined with the technology of LEDs. Flax is a renewable resource. LEDs reduce the consumption of energy to a minimum. The production of light shifts from the world of objects to the invisible world of electronics. The aim is to reduce the size of the object while simultaneously increasing their performance. In this project flax forms the reflector, providing a light diffuser to soften the glare from the small light source, providing comfort and ease for the eyes. Using a minimum of materials, flax becomes the carrier of the electronics. And light takes on form.
