Society’ s diversifying values. To enhance those values, something comfortable is needed̶ comfortable to people, to society, to the earth. The KAITEKI concept has been created to make that something a reality. KAITEKI is a broad concept embracing Sustainability, Health, and Comfort. VELVE is a major step toward its achievement. Light that consumes less power, saves space, and does not emit heat. Above all, light that is comfortable. The light of VELVE. Light that illuminates a new future̶a KAITEKI‘comfort’lifestyle. Experience new VELVE light to see how KAITEKI feels. これからの社会の多用な価値観。その価値を高めるには? 人にとっての心地よさ、社会にとっての心地よさ、地球にとっての心地よさ。それらを実現するのが「KAITEKI」Conceptです。 (資源・環境の持続可能性) 、Health (健康) 、Comfort (快適) のすべてを抱合する広く大きな意味を持った考えです。 「KAITEKI」は、Sustainability 「VELVE」はそのための大きな一歩です。省エネ、省スペース、熱を出さない。そして何よりも快適な光。

VELVEの光。薄いパネルが織りなす表情。それはまるでベルベット(VELVET) のような豊かな彩りと深い光沢、滑らかで上品な質感のある光です。今までには なかった新らしい体感(センス)。

VELVEの光。それは新しい体験。視覚だけではなく触感をも刺激する「光のマテ リアル」。いつまでも手の中におさめたくなるような光。柔らかい光。鮮やかな光。 手のひらでその光を受けてみてください。驚きと同時に、どこか安らぎさえ抱くこ とになるでしょう。きっとその光をずっとそばにおいておきたくなるはずです。

Velvet Touch VELVE light. Even light, from an ultra-thin panel. Light of rich color and deep luster with a smooth and luxurious feel just like velvet. A new physical sensation never known before. VELVE light. An entirely new experience. A“light material”stimulating to the touch as well as vision. Light you will want to keep holding in your hands. Soft light. Rich light. Feel it with your open palm. You will experience a sense of surprise and, simultaneously, a sense of calm.

VELVEの上質な光で満たした誰も体験したことのない幻想空間。オブジェの光 を受けて何百もの多面体の光を反射させる空間は、さながら未来都市の光景。

Future City

A cluster of luminous cubes, glowing whitely. Infinite beautiful reflections around them amplify their light. In time, the white light becomes light of rich beautiful colors to the accompaniment of music. The effect̶a world of light and sound previously unknown. An orchestration of light and color, interweaving bold flourishes with subdued tones. Together with illusionistic sounds, the light sculpture sets into motion, as if alive. Mirrors, set at complex angles on walls, engender an illusionistic space, a world illuminated by luxurious VELVE light. Receiving light from the sculpture, the mirrors produce hundreds of light polyhedrons, a scene like a futuristic cityscape.

Human Consciousness Light panels inscribe a graceful arc in black darkness. VELVE light, floating in darkness,

calls to mind dewdrops rippling a lake surface, a tree-lined road dappled by sunlight, the crisp tension and human warmth of a city ... The panels, arrayed at a height ideal for touching, move like a living entity. They appear at times as monochrome lights enveloped in silence and, at times, as passionately dancing lights. A space of ever changing rich colors and subtle color temperatures. It is a lightscape, enjoyed within an intimate distance, and an experience of tactile light only VELVE can produce. Its colorful“light emotions”hold people spellbound.

漆黒の闇の中に、ゆるやかに弧を描浮遊する発光面。闇に浮かんだVELVEの光 は、朝露がしたたる湖の水面や、木漏れ日に揺れる並木道、心地よい緊張と人び との熱を感じる都市を感じさせてくれます。 ちょうど手に触れられる高さに揃えられた光は、まるで生き物のように動き出す。 時には静寂の中のモノクロームな光。また時には情熱的な舞踏を舞いはじめる 光。鮮やかな色彩や繊細な色温度の変化を体感できる空間。すべてがすぐそば にある魅力的な情景であり、VELVEだけが表現可能な触感のある光体験。多彩 な「光の感情」は、人の心を魅了し続けます。

all kinds. Light is the most familiar and beautiful of all materials for us as human beings.

Composing the spaces under the key words“floating,”“vision,”and“touch,”we endeavored to

Light born from a crystallization of new technologies . . . Light having a smooth and velvety feel,

draw out the qualities of OLED (Organic light-emitting diode) to an infinite degree and realize a

never experienced before. This is VELVE, a safe light blessed with rich color and luminance. VELVE is certain to become the light we are fondest of, the light we keep nearby.

“new encounter with light”at each booth. To this end, we employed traditional Japanese paper, a

material presenting soft color tones when approached closely. The polyhedron light sculptures we designed in collaboration with paper artist Koji Tanaka.

So Advanced. So rich in possibilities. It will sweep the world. Milan ̶ a beacon for cutting-edge design and a rich repository of history. A place we chose to debut VELVE, a new kind of light that draws inspiration from history. The future will see continuing technological advances. VELVE too will advance and give form to new products and technologies once only dreamed of. VELVE fuses cutting edge technologies while also in harmony with history and tradition. By valuing history and the refined, elegant taste of the world’s top creators, VELVE light will continue to grow in appeal. Through its Milan debut, VELVE ̶ a“light material”stimulating to all five senses ̶ will spread throughout the world. To Europe, America, and Asia. To you in your world. When you next fall under the spell of light, it may well be VELVE light. 最先端のデザインが集まる街としての顔と、歴史の趣を色濃く残す街としての顔。それがミラノです。 私たちはVELVEのデビューの場にこの街を選びました。新しい光、そして歴史を引き継いでいく光として…。 未来は進化していきます。夢のような技術や製品が現実になるように、VELVEも進化し続けます。 そして忘れてはならないことは、先端技術を集結させるだけではなく、上質な歴史と伝統と調和するのもVELVEであること。 世界でもっとも洗練されたエレガントなセンスによってVELVEの光をさらに魅力的に、歴史を引き継いで行く光なのです。 ヒトの五感を刺激する「上質な光のマテリアル」はミラノのデビューを経て、ヨーロッパ、アメリカ、そしてアジアへと、世界中に広がって行きます。 そしてあなたの目の前にも。広がる光の世界が魅力的だったならば、それはきっとVELVEです。
