Design and function are moving ever closer together, with nature increasingly serving as a model. KURZ designers have been inspired by a bird’s feather dress on the door trim, as the name of the design suggests: Cloudy Feathers. In the daytime design, the monochrome surface with organically curved, matte, and shiny elements is reminiscent of a bird’s feather dress. With backlighting, the feathers become bright and almost technical-looking diamonds. The color of the translucent ambient light changes with a swipe of a finger, creating a fascinating new look.
In a nutshell: PolyTC® sensors. These capacitive sensors are not only extremely robust and functional but also enable clear, true-color illumination over the entire touch area. This enabled KURZ to realize a functional day-night design. The sensors are flexible too, allowing them to be integrated into 3D-shaped components as well.
