Keith Panel Systems (KPS) has partnered with artist and inventor, Roderick Quin — the Creative Director of Ombrae Studios. OmbraeTM is a unique material surface treatment. Using computer-aided digital processing and state-of-the-art CNC manufacturing, three dimensional pixels – Optical Tiles™ are created within a metal surface. Each Optical Tile reflects finely controlled values of light. For the viewer, this creates the ability to perceive photo-realistic imagery.
Combined with engineered and fabricated system packages provided by KPS, this imaging technology has wide-ranging potential for architectural façade applications. Not only able to deliver visually stimulating imagery, Ombrae can assist with solar shading, privacy control, and natural ventilation. It can be used for both open-air screening and also in high-performance building envelope wall installations.
