In Japan, the ginkgo tree is venerated. Several ginkgo trees survived the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 and continue to live today. For this reason, the trees are considered a ”bearer of hope” and a symbol of resilience and peace on the island nation. That is why the distinctive fan-shaped ginkgo leaf is a popular motif in Japanese art and is used in the logos of the city of Tokyo and railway logo company Toei.


Here is the result, a repeatable element that will shape on thousands of different combinations, as elegance as Japanese love to do everything.


We love the traditional Japanese pictures, where they use their cultural icons to compose their landscapes!!!


The panels have a sloping from up to down to improve the acoustic effect as the typical foam acoustic panels, and for giving movement to the wall, creating shades accentuating the landscape effect.
