OLED lighting installation “Infuse” presented by KANEKA

KANEKA CORPORATION will present its OLED lighting installation “Infuse” at the Milano Salone 2013 this April placed at SuperStudio in Tortona, Milan ( At Superstudio Più, via Tortona 27).
The 2013 installation was designed by rising young talent, architect Chikara Ohno, well established lighting designer Izumi Okayasu and noted textile designer Yoko Ando.

-An environment infused with light.-

In this installation, our goal is not to illuminate an object or display a source of light, but to create an environment defined by an intermediate condition of light.
The exhibition area is not so much an interior, but an environment like a landform where the soft light provided by many OLED panels infuses the space, forming a large 'light-scape'.
Through the use of a detailed light control program, a space with shifting changes is created.
We hope that the act of moving through a landscape permeated with light provides a new lighting experience that is richer than a purely visual one.

Enter KANEKA’s 2013 OLED installation and immerse yourself in an environment infused with a spectacle of mesmerizing light.
