Concrete video screen
PIXA, designed by Abhinand Lath, utilizes Sensitile Systems’ light-piping technologies to enable the placement of a precise grid of light guides within a concrete matrix. These light guides optically connect the two surfaces of the material and mate directly to an LED screen or projection system on one surface, allowing the digital control of each “pixel” on the corresponding surface. PIXA is also appropriate for use as a screen or divider panel, and may be manufactured with a random, “organic” pattern of light terminals rather than a strict grid layout.
