About the competition:

Five teams, concisting of students of six different fields of study from the School of Design and Medialab in University of Arts and Design Helsinki, have participated this competition.

The aim of the competition has been to create innovations around Philips'
Lumalive- technology.

Lumalive fabrics feature flexible arrays of colored light-emitting diodes (LEDs) fully integrated into the fabric - without compromising the softness or flexibility of the cloth. These light emitting textiles make it possible to create materials that can carry dynamic messages, graphics or multicolored surfaces.

The student teams' projects and the prizes of the competition are published on Monday, May 14th 2007, at 1 pm (13.00), in the event placed in the TaiK main lobby. At the same time opens an one-week exhibition, where all the works are displayed.

The given prizes are 3000, 2000 and1000 euros. They shall be handed by W.Bas Zeper (Managing Director, Photonic Textiles Business Unit, Philips Research).


The exhibition is open on the opening day and then on the following week (15.-19.5.) tue-sat from 12 to 6 pm.
