Luminoso Let The Light Go Out of the Wood

luminous wood panel by luminoso

I continue my coverage of the Toronto Interior Design Show 2009. Luminoso won my top 3 discoveries of IDS 09. This material is really cool.

Small wood columns are glued side by side with fiber optic (forming dots) in between to form an entire panel. Light can pass through the dots. A silhouette drawing is laser cut on a black paper to reveal the design.

When you wish to update your décor, you simply change the black and white drawing. The main structure of Luminoso can be used over and over. For this reason, they can become a favorite choice for event designers when making a party decor. They can replace printed banners on trade show booths with more panache.

It can be used in home décor, to display a logo or as signage panel. If I am not mistaken, depending on the wood type, the wood panels cost between $40 and $100 for a small sheet.
