Smart Surfaces

Backlighting effects, touch operation, and Shy Tech

Experience KURZ Smart Surfaces in the wild. The boundaries between the environment and design concepts are eroding. Inspiration is everywhere. Function and operability under the surface are initially concealed behind a Shy Tech design. They only become alive and show their smartness with a touch or movement. There are hardly any limits to the design and intelligence of the surface: No limits to the look, feel, and functionality. This product design concept shows what is possible in the consumer electronics sector. This applies to both decoration and technology: With hot stamping and IMD decoration, KURZ creates natural effects, backlighting, and haptic effects. Intuitive operation is ensured by intelligent touch functionality. KURZ always keeps an eye on efficiency and efficient production processes.
