Lumina™ is a revolutionary material that transforms energy-efficient edge-lighting into a dreamlike surface of floating points of light.
Its internal structure carries the LED point source effortlessly across space, allowing designers to build with light itself. Lumina can create a dazzling array of colors and LED temperatures.
Featured ApplicationsLumina captures light in a tangible form. Depending on the intensity of light, this material can serve as a primary source of illumination or as an accent. When incorporated in bespoke solutions, Lumina can be used for a multitude of applications - wall, signage, wayfinding, ceiling, artwork, counter face, counter top, furniture and fixture as well as screens and dividers. It also makes a perfect diffuser for light fixtures.
Chromatherapy in a Spa
When included in good design, light and light-manipulating materials help provide occupants of a space with well-being, control, and choice, all of which have become prevalently tied to good health.
In this elegant design by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the LINQ Spa features glittering walls of light created using our edge-illuminated Lumina™ panels. The mood of this space can be instantly altered from cool and calming to bright and high-energy, using sophisticated controllers that finely tune the color and saturation of the light emitted from the panels. The installation spans multiple panels in width on opposing walls and achieves this seamless look by using concealed z-clip hardware to hang the panels which have diamond polished edges to minimize the appearance of seams.
Space defining "River of light"
Davis and Davis specified Lumina panels for the ceiling of this office building remodel. The panels create a 200 foot long uninterrupted "river of light" that defines the main ground floor lobby, bringing a visually stunning beam of light into this previously dark space.
Sensitile supplied the panels, lighting and hardware as a ready to install package.
Our configurable solutions resolve complex design challenges into a kit of parts that includes hardware and lighting. Where possible, components are provided pre-assembled for ease of installation.
Resin is lightweight and easy to fabricate. It is flexible, versatile, and resilient and can be wrapped and folded into seamless 3-D surfaces and shapes. Available in a myriad of colors and configurations, resin panels may consist of up to 90% post-consumer recycled content. With their layered and laminated structure, resin light-manipulating materials meet the ANSI Z97.1 standard for safety glazing in buildings.
Grain width determines the size of light-emitting points and also correlates with the thickness of the material.
In double sided configurations with transparent face and back cladding, light-emission occurs from both surfaces. In single-sided applications the non-see-through back is typically mirror-plated and light points face the front only.
Light Point Density
The density of light-emitting points can be varied or customized for bespoke designs.
Color can most simply be achieved and refreshed with light itself. However this strategy can also be combined with material configurations that have transparent or mirror color cladding or colored film layers to achieve the perfect match.
Environmentally friendly and Sustainable
As well as creating innovative, dynamic spaces, light-manipulating materials will not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during their production or their lifecycle, making them safe for use in an interior environment. They are PVC- and formaldehyde-free and contain no chemicals of concern.
Third party verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD's), Health Product Declaration (HPD)s as well as recycled content certification is available for our materials.

Light travel is most efficient with clear and lighter transparent face colors in combination with a clear mirror back.
The following selections may effect uniformity of light travel in the panel:
1) Darker face colors 2) Surface finishes like frosted/matte/opal/mist; 3) Opaque back cladding like White Opaque.
Transparent (none), Frosted, Matte (renewable), Opal (internally frosted), Mist (lightly frosted)
Transparent (none), Acid-etched (frosted)
Iridescent films, custom film colors, transparent art films, fabric, and wood veneer.
Edge lit - one or more edges. Dependent on the size and configuration of the panel.
Face only or both Face and Back
