Intelligent Warp

Kate Deacon works on making smart textiles and sustainability compatible and uses smart technology to generate organic movements in light-reactive interior textiles.


Intelligent Warp is a window blind that stores energy, which it then slowly releases to power and light the home.

A fully closed blind that has no exposure to light remains closed. As natural light makes contact with the fabric it starts to contract. The heat of the sun warms the Shape Memory Alloys so that it contracts then allow sunlight through.
