Janus Fabric Material

Janus Fabric is a new conceptual material, whose surface can work as a heating or lighting system. The combination of the material diversity and incorporated functional system creates multi-dimensional designs, which are both functional and aesthetic. Janus Fabric originated from the idea to expand the definition of a simple surface material to a performing component. To add a function to a product, additional components and complex production systems are usually required. Since Janus itself can perform the function, this can help to solve these problems and allows to focus on the design.
