Optical Tiles

The new materiality of shadows

Designed for interiors and facades, Optical Tiles is stamped aluminium panels with 3D pixels that creates animations as the viewer moves by a surface. Their ‘Ombrae’ technique use the casting of shadows and differing angles of perspective to create the impression of an animated surface on any kind of material. In addition to its design potential Quinn believes that his technology can optimise the characteristics of surfaces like heat storage, and the cooling of buildings and energy generation.
