Ettlin Lux Launches in Australia

The Ettlin Lux® collection offers a range of different fabrics with various optical properties and material characteristics. Each fabric collection produces a different effect, intensity, length, brightness, shape and depth. Different levels of translucency and colour can also be achieved through the different fabric design selection and lighting design. Ettlin Lux® fabrics have a wide range of application purposes including wall features and ceiling installations in any commercial or residential application.


Ettlin Lux® MagicFabric is an innovative light technical fabric which creates three-dimensional luminous structures by interaction with LEDs. The fabric can be draped according to your ideas and will be installed by integrating the LED technique. Luminous bodies will arise with various three-dimensional effects creating new visual sensations.

MagicFabric is suitable to decorate large areas, and can be applied to floors, walls, ceilings, façades and in big volume elements. It offers new creative possibilities for events, shows, stages, retail fit-outs and seasonal illumination.



Ettlin Lux® MoodFabrics are effect fabrics that create a different ambiance with luminous structures. It can create fascinating spatial effects, creative designs, dramatic or soft ambiance. MoodFabric also offers colour matching to RAL colours for custom colour selection to match the colour requirements of a project. By using RGB LEDs the fabric reproduces the chosen LED colours, or by using white LEDs the fabric reproduces its own colour. Two layer effects are also possible by combining two layers of fabric. With these possibilities, Ettlin Lux® can be custom designed to match the colour that is required. Below are some examples of RAL colours, each colour will have a different response to lighting.

Smart Glas

Ettlin Lux® Smart Glas creates a glowing ambiance with dramatic effect and can be used as a splashback in indoor and outdoor applications. Ettlin Lux® Smart Glas combines glass surfaces with a creative light design. LEDs interact with the glass and create three-dimensional effects in various forms and colours. Following the production principle of safety glass it is made out of two pieces of float glass or tempered safety glass.

The effect material is embedded in between. Dimensions up to 1750 mm x 3000 mm are possible. Insulated glass with Ettlin lux® Smart Glas is possible as well. Individual dimensions and forms are feasible as well as additional drill holes or edge grindings. The laminated glass can be fixed with conventional mounting devices. Similar to Ettlin Lux® fabrics the Smart Glas interacts with point light sources such as LEDs and creates fascinating luminous structures. Use colour LEDs such as RGB LEDs in order to adapt the installation to your room setup. You can create a splashback that changes colours through colour changing lighting that will make a dramatic and dynamic kitchen space.


Ettlin Lux® Decolux Fabric combines the three-dimensional optical and illumination properties of the Ettlin Lux® effect fabrics with the visual appearance and finish of a textured decorative fabric. Decolux is available in a range of finishes as per roll sizes indicated. Without being backlit, Decolux offers a textured fabric that is beautiful and unique to look at and touch. As soon as the fabric is backlit, fascinating luminous three-dimensional effects appear. Create covers for walls and ceilings, curtains that look beautiful during the day, and when ‘switched on’ at night offer brilliant illumination with added ambience.
