dc.description.abstractPolymeric optical fiber fabrics (POFFs) have been used in a wide range of applications, from smart clothing to medical products; therefore, it is interesting to note that there is a gap in the literature which explores the use of POFFs within the context of interior textiles. This research explores the use of illuminative interior textile surfaces as a multifunctional media that can enhance the interior environment via changes in colors, luminescence and surface design, and also act as a power-efficient light source for illumination. The development of POFFs involves several techniques, such as weaving, laser engraving, and integration of electronics. In order to obtain aesthetically pleasing surface designs and textures, and achieve favorable tactile quality, different materials are combined together. Surface printing and embroidery technologies are also adopted to enhance the surface pattern. A collection of life-sized photonic interior prototypes is created. The light sources of the prototypes are light emitting diodes (LEDs), which are considered energy saving and eco-friendly.en_US
