Kaneka: Kumiko

January 3, 2018

The Kumiko OLED collection from Kaneka was conceived by Japanese designer Michiru Tanaka to serve as a modular tile system that can be vertically mounted on walls. The tiles disperse light broadly without creating harsh shadows. Measuring 1.1 millimeters in depth, the nickel-plated tiles reference traditional patterned woodwork found in Japanese screens, and they also function as reflective mirrors when dimmed.
