SENSITILE TERRAZZO LUMINA BAR TOP WITH BUILT-IN LED LIGHTING

A PASSIVE, LIGHT-REACTIVE PRODUCT

The concept behind these products is rooted in light interaction:

  • The material senses changes in light directly above its surface.
  • Small optical resin chips (“points”) at the surface, are embedded into the terrazzo.
  • A fiber optic network that interconnects the chips below the surface.
  • Hand movement and changing light colors above the surface creates interaction between adjacent chips.
  • The chips twinkle above the product’s surface.

In summary, Sensitile Terrazzo is not electronic in any way. The surface particles are purely light-reactive.
