Luminous Carpets

One simple installation.

Infinite ways to make an impression.


Want to make your mark on visitors and guests? Luminous Carpets let you welcome, attract and guide them in ways they’ve never seen before.


Touch your tablet, and lights under your feet brightly display graphics and words. Touch your smartphone, and dynamic moving images show a personal welcome to your expected guest. Your floor becomes a tool for informing and inspiring people. Luminous Carpets integrate cutting-edge LED lights and high performance carpets.

Where can you use Luminous Carpets?


The materials we use are so resilient, and the LED units so robust, that Luminous Carpets can be used almost anywhere in your building. For example, you can…


• Show personalized greetings in hotel rooms


• Display attention-grabbing signs and animations at tradeshows


• Direct visitors towards your front desk in lobby areas


• Display live information feeds in waiting areas, e.g. news headlines


• Use hallways floors to direct people to toilets, exits and meeting rooms. During an emergency, the lights can help people to find an alternative escape route.

How it works

Infinite ways to make an impression.


Luminous Carpets combine Philips LED technology with light transmissive carpet specially developed by Desso; represented by Tandus Centiva in North America and by Desso in Europe and Asia. The result is a durable, stylish flooring solution that you can use to greet, impress and inform people in new and exciting ways.
