How minimally processed timber becomes a delight in every space

KINOWA BEAM is a minimalist masterpiece. It is a piece of cedar wood embedded with an energy-saving LED light source. Sourced from thinned out trees in managed forests in Japan, the Kinowa Beam retains the form and beauty of original timber. As a result, production waste is minimized and yield per log is maximized. As natural forests in Japan require thinning out to promote healthy growth and wildfire prevention, thinned out trees are turned into these simple yet beautiful light fixtures. Kinowa Beam was designed by the team of Japan’s NOSEGNER, which is a design firm that tackles social challenges by offering innovative design solutions.
