Nuno Erin, a relatively new company founded in 2006, is known for an interest in relationships between people and their environment. The touch panels, which are made from wood, foam, and thermo-sensitive fabric (available in 18 inch and 24 inch models) are a means to replacing drab walls with an intriguing heat-sensing, light-changing perspective. The panels react not only to body heat, but to changes in atmosphere (such as temperature and light). Think of a mood ring, only bigger, and for adults.
