Concept Description

TDC’s history has been brought alive in an inspiring way, and the challenge of the noise in the corridor was solved by combining Luminous Textile panels and Kvadrat Soft Cells. On one side of the corridor, a range of dynamic content is shown on black Luminous Textile panels, which are easier to see in this narrow area. This comprises pictures from TDC showing how they create ‘special ties’ in people’s lives. Alongside the panels, there are LED flat screens showing the same pictures in HD. Together, these different media make for an experience which is more gripping and which people remember. On the other side of the corridor is the curving concrete wall, covered in Kvadrat Soft Cells. These are finished in two different black materials – one smooth, the other structured. The combination makes the experience living and tactile. The smooth panels are also printed with white icons representing TDC’s range of telephony solutions. Starting from the hidden topic, information flows from the ‘light strips’ in the RTP and reflects communications flowing around in Denmark. www.philips.com/luminous-textile
