We have been wowed by this innovative technology engineered by Scottish company DesignLED. Their LED Light Tiles are thin sheets of flexible resin housing a grid of low energy LEDs. After garnering much interest at Lux Live 2013, the product has caught the attention of home furnishing megalith IKEA. They have recently announced they are investing in the products, opening up a whole host of design possibilities for integration into their product line.
The MD of IKEA Greentech, Christian Ehrenborg had this to say about the partnership “This technology opens up fantastic possibilities for innovative designs using energy efficient LEDs. The partnership is a clear strategic fit for IKEA and our goal to make living sustainably affordable and attractive for millions of people,”
The move is part of IKEA’s GreenTech initiative, a drive to bring innovative sustainable products into the home. Plans are in place to overhaul their lighting catalogue by switching exclusively to LED by next September.
