Tsuru Mayuko / Material (for lighting)

Tsuru Mayuko
Tsuru Mayuko

The concept of “Cosmic-Piece” is a lighting panel that is embedded in the wall as an indirect lighting in the room.
This material is made with plaster and candles, crayons.
This material has two impressions, with reflected light you can see a colorful pattern by crayon, with transmitted light you can see the expression of fantastic light.
In other words, you can enjoy it as a wallpaper of the room during the daytime and you can enjoy it as a light when you turn on the light at night.
It has two functions of wallpaper and lighting, so, even in a narrow apartment, you can feel luxurious while maximizing the space.
