Product description

A play of circular lines and surfaces, the motif Hoop-La is the result of a collaboration with architects – a porcelain relief, lit from the back by an LED panel.
The traditional and classical Lithophane technique used in the wall lights, Sunmoon, Hoop-La and Daylight, was developed in the 19th century. The transmission of light through reliefs incorporated in 1-2 mm thin porcelain sheets produces images in seamless shadings of light and dark, thus allowing photorealistic motifs.
The standard suspension is made from white coated aluminum, where the sheet slips into the frame from the side, allowing you to see the edge of the fine porcelain while letting out a small strip of light. In a built-in variation the light can be integrated directly into the wall.

Concept

An old technique reborn
cordula kafka–light & porcelain ffers various versions of large porcelain pictures, manufactured in the classical lithophany-technique dating from the 19th century.
The transmission of light through reliefs incorporated in 2 mm thick porcelain sheets produces images in seamless shadings of light and dark, thus allowing photorealistic motifs.
C.K. has re ned the classical lithophany in size and subject and combined it with the process of manufacturing large porcelain sheets as used for technical porcelain. This allows to produce porcelain images up to 40 x 45 cm and 30 x 55 cm in size.

Thanks to the LED technique it is possible to illuminate the complete porcelain surface, evenly from the back. The standard suspension is made from white coated aluminum. The sheet slips into the frame from the side, allowing you to see the edge of the ne porcelain while letting out a small strip of light.
A built-in variation is available, as can be seen in the picture of DAYLIGHT – LANDSCAPE. An example with colored LED light is demonstrated by the motive HOOP-LA.
Individual and bespoke solutions, sizes and motifs are available on demand.
