3.14 for the company innovation, studio Quarks Design, Nicolas Triboulot Laurent Grapin and Thibault Thomas developed the "On / Off" painting, a sensitive paint that turns walls switch touch control. Once the paint on the wall, a simple user contact on the surface allows to switch off the light. The switch disappears and the entire wall surface becomes active.
The system consists of a paint and an electronic device hidden and will be marketed sometime in 2011. Painting "On / Off" can be applied by brush or roller plaster support, wood, concrete or plastic. It may be coated with a topcoat of paint or wallpaper. Both accessible and convenient, the system will also control alarm, shutters or any other electrical device.
Painting "On / Off" is now presented City Science and Industry as part of the exhibition APCI "The Design Observer 2010".
