Loop.ph is my favorite truly innovative design company in the UK.
Here are a few of my favorite designs of theirs.
Sunumbra acts as a tree by day casting shade upon the earth as it's solar cells charge to cast light by night.
This is their alternative to an alarm clock. The fabric slowly illuminates waking you with light instead of sound.
This is a memory tablecloth that is illuminated by weight of objects placed upon it.
