Lumina by Sensitile

Feb. 5, 2018

During his 2002 thesis work, Abhinand Lath invented an interactive surfacing material that mimicked the way a strand of bamboo filters light and casts shadows. Following the product development, Lath began to draw interest from designers and architects and founded Sensitile Systems. Sensitile focuses on creating interactive designs that blend, scatter, and redirect ambient light. The company also manufactures all product with green processes and ships directly from its Michigan facilities to their worldwide partners. Whether for the hospitality industry, a museum, or a mixed-use urban space, Sensitile offers aesthetically appealing products that create a powerful interplay between light and movement.
