DIAMOND / Ceramic tiles with integrated LED lighting


Diamond aims to use ceramics, which is mostly preferred in the kitchens due to hygiene concerns, as a lighting element to solve the problem of dark areas caused by the cabinets in the kitchen. Before assembling the tiles, LEDs are mounted on the desired places on the wall. The light comes out thanks to the translucent ceramics regions in the middle of the tile. The ceramics unit is also influenced by the soft lighting filtered by tree branches and the idea of creating different combinations with one unit. This designs can be also used for different purposes in various areas with its aesthetic looking in addition to its functional features.
