Abstract(s)Creating this product started with the challenge of developing a textile-based product that incorporated design, human interaction and light. Very early on dur-ing the design process, a gap in the kid’s segment was identified leading to the investigation into children’s illumination products and the idea to develop a new form of night-lights. Looking at existing technology and products, the idea be-came clear: to develop an interactive wall panel that reacted according to specific stimuli. By carrying out questionnaires and interacting with children in person the specific stimuli were identified; the panel would react to sound and movement. To build the panel electronic equipment such as LEDs, a microprocessor, sound sen-sors and movement sensors were used, along with MDF boards for the structure and specific fabrics for appearance. Due to a thorough investigation, specific col-ours and shapes were identified. Consequently, the outcome was a product we believe provides interaction, well-being and safety to the young target users, along with providing the parents with a calm and peaceful environment for their loved ones to sleep.
