RELIGHT [eco-lightbul_ fabric]

Project: Undisclosed US Army tent prototype

Manufacturer: Grado Zero Espace


Featured material:

ReLight [Eco-lightbulb fabric]

A new-generation light designed fabric based on electroluminescence technology.  First developed entirely for military purposes, this material is made up of glass fibers with micro-coatings of conductive polymers resulting in a cold-light source with great flexible characteristics and harmless for tactile applications.  This material properties will allow complete reduction of needed light fixture assembly and a great sustainable future application for lighting measure in exterior and interior conditions.  it will replace the fragile mercury-laden fluorescent tubes used by the military today.  The new panels will not need to be packed in heavy protective crates, but instead will be attached to the inside of a tent.  No assembly/disassembly required; the lighting collapses and is packed along with the tent.
