Une nouvelle paire de lunettes proposée par Shwood, lunetier américain déjà évoqué lors de la sortie de sa gamme de montures en "pierre fine" (brève avril 2013). Cette fois-ci, c'est avec le papier journal que les ateliers ont décidé de jouer. Ils reconstituent tout d'abord des troncs avec du papier journal enroulé/collé, puis le débitent en plaquettes afin d'usiner les faces de lunettes. On retrouve alors les veines et le fil du bois, un retour au sources en quelques sortes pour ce papier recyclé. Vu les matières utilisées pour ses gammes, Shwood est sans doute membre de matériO !
La vidéo d'explication est très claire, à voir ici
MatériO is present in the meetings " Materials in Light " on March 18th and 19th in Paris. The presented materials are exceptional, the mansion which welcomes us for the opportunity : amazing, the announced weather : radiant. Three reasons for not missing this MEETING at the edge of the Parc Monceau. Free entrance but compulsory registration here
A superb exhibition design by IDA for this "Composite for a Better Living" exhibition featured by the JEC fair (March, 10-12 2015) Not that my praise would have anything to do with the fact that matériO is one of the participants with a large panel displaying about 15 materials specifically linked to the composite field... The space is large and clear, well designed and the visit very educational. Icing on the cake: I met two manufacturers I have been stocking for year asking them samples and they promissed they will finally send us samples in the coming weeks!
These luminescent headphones look like Star Wars or Tron accessories. The cable does not only conduct music but light as well, pulsing in rythm with what you are actually listening to or in rythm with your heart beats. It can also flash so that you know you are receiving a call or a message ! Not a traditional electroluminescent cable but an optical fiber strongly diffusing light. The light source is LEDs, hidden in a small control box. GLOW is now available on kickstarter, in green, blue and red for 150$.

A collection of clothes to avoid paparazzis stocking you all day ! This revolutionary textile (glass nanospheres, incredible) is supposed to reflect flash lights so much that pictures become unexploitable, as the press release claims. Well the thing is that in fact, those are not nanospheres, they are microbeads, less glamorous. And the fact is that it does not only work with flash lights, but with any direct poweful light source, such as car lights, shop windows, etc. So basically, if you were expecting to go un-noticed... you could not go more wrong as you will be the only one visible ! Finally, let's be honest, our social-narcistic-network era pushes us much more toward improving our selfies rather than avoiding pictures... But if you are still interested by this type of reflective textiles, we have several references in our database... and not only on textiles, but on concrete, tape, paint and even leather !
The video to watch here, but real problems are probably somewhere else, don't you think ?
