karuun® shine

Amazingly light yet outstandingly hard, fine to the touch and highly formable, while remaining permeable to air and light.

karuun® shine is produced by saw cutting the face wood of karuun® block. Cut this way, rattan’s hollow capillaries reveal a subtly tiled pattern on a naturally perforated surface that is translucent and even slightly malleable. Depending on the angle it is viewed from karuun® shine appears to vary in thickness and translucency, and rearranging pieces in a certain way gives the impression of individual pixel-like surfaces.​

As a functional, natural material, karuun® shine is perfect for use in a wide range of new applications, from customised sound insulation to avant-garde lighting design and innovative surfaces for walls and floors.​

karuun® shine is a light material that is permeable to light and air and has excellent stability, formability and feel. From custom-made, high-tech acoustic protection, to avant-garde lighting design and innovative flooring, karuun® shine is a versatile material with a unique capillary structure.
