Light has an intense impact on our emotional and physiological wellbeing. By incorporating illumination into familiar surfaces and objects, we can shape a living space that responds to its surroundings and inhabitants.

Rachel Wingfield (loop) creates responsive, luminous fabrics and objects, using new materials and technologies as a form of visual communication in built-environments. Within FoAM's 'illumine' programme, she will exhibit her growing surfaces for the future of everyday life, including the award winning 'Digital Dawn' window blind and 'Light Sleeper' bedding.

Rachel Wingfield graduated from the Royal College of Art (London) in 2001 with an MPhil in textiles. She started up her independent design practice under the name of loop in 2003. Rachel was a finalist for the Peugeot Design Awards winning the development prize in 2002 for Light Sleeper Bedding, she was short listed for 'best new comer 2003' in the 100% Design Blueprint Awards and featured on BBC’s Tomorrows World 'Best New Invention 2003'.

Open Saturday 06 December 2003 – Friday 11 December 2003, 14.00-18.00
