Born of a unique expertise in contemporary textile design and e-textile technology - an innovative marriage of textiles, design and electronics, IFM's exclusive lighting products add style and warmth to any room.

Our patented Plush Touch™ sensing technology is the magic behind our lighting products. By embedding electronic fibers directly into fabric, we've created lighting controls that combine softness and style to provide a delightful interactive experience.

Because these lighting controls are beautiful, inviting and downright fun to use, they appeal to just about everyone - from design aficionados, to anyone who enjoys playful tactile experiences. Kids love them as much as grown-ups. Just a gentle tap of the plush fabric turns on, off or dims the lights, and transforms the act of lighting a room into an extraordinary sensory experience. Just one touch and you'll be hooked.

"The inviting dimmers not only change the user experience from mechanical to sensual/tactile, they transform the aesthetic and atmosphere of the room they're used in."
