The Light.Touch.Matters project is funded by EU’s Seventh Framework Programme and is a design driven development of touch-sensitive luminous flexible surfaces for applications in care and well-being.

Light.Touch.Matters is a unique cooperation between product designers, material scientists and the industry, with 17 partners from 9 EU countries. The project is creating a new product development process, new material innovation and a road to innovation that will bring a significant heritage to the participants, developing methods and theories that we expect to have applications out of the bounds of the project consortium in a not so distant future.

In this project, designers and scientists join forces to develop a new generation of smart materials that can sense touch and movement and respond with light. The fact that the project involves industry secures a steady way towards realisation of the ideas.
