Ravers hit the mainstream, and boy is it getting interesting. Luminex is light-emitting fabric that is woven with plastic fiber optics. Run off of a rechargeable cell phone battery or an adapter plugged into the wall, it can be used almost anywhere your imagination might lead you, including place mats, table cloths, slipcovers or curtains.
Luminex can also be used in clothing and handbags as it is lightweight, pliable and does not heat up. You have to check out the pics on the website. Luminex is the product of a collaboration between CAEN of Italy and Stabio Textiles of Switzerland and is sold in NY through Zuzka at 37 18th street (212.260.1876). (via Metropolis)
