Kumiko Panels

Kumiko is a Japanese woodwork technique that dates back to the 8th century. Having developed over a long period of time, kumiko is now a sophisticated technique of arranging wooden pieces in geometric patterns without nails. The result is a stunning wooden lattice.

Simply Native’s kumiko panels are assembled by hand with an accuracy of 0.1mm. Despite its delicate appearance, these panels are sturdy and durable. They are constructive from Japanese Hinoki cypress by award-winning artisans in Japan.

Original patterns, custom sizes, and the addition of shoji paper can be made upon request.

How to Order

Step 1

What do you need Kumiko panel for?

It can be used to partition spaces, decorate walls, decorate ceilings, and cover lighting.

By using Kumiko and glass together, both the insulation and decoration are enhanced.

In addition, it can also protect your personal privacy by attaching a sheet of paper to one side of the Kumiko.

It can be used in a wide variety of ways to enchance commercial facilities, homes and offices.

Sliding Door Components
It is a part for sliding door (the panel, without the main frame of the fittings).

If you want to use it as a sliding door, you need to have a fittings supplier attach a frame with a pull handle and a door head.

*This product does not include the frame for the sliding door.

Furniture and Door Components
Since it is an assembly molding that does not use nails, it can be cut like a plate material. It can be used as various interior materials.

Tanihata’s Kumiko can be used for various furniture parts and surface materials such as furniture, counters, and store fixtures.

Celling Lattice
Tanihata Kumiko, which go well with lighting, can be used as part of a luminous ceiling.
