OF DAVID EPS TEIN, THE
ABBE Y GROUP
During his 2002 thesis work, Abhinand Lath
invented an interactive surfacing
material that mimicked the way a strand of
bamboo filters light and casts shadows.
Following the product development, Lath
began to draw interest from designers and
architects and founded Sensitile Systems.
Sensitile focuses on creating interactive
designs that blend, scatter, and redirect
ambient light. The company also manufactures
all products with sustainable processes and ships
directly from its Michigan facilities to its worldwide
partners. Whether for the hospitality industry, a
museum, or a mixed-use urban space, Sensitile offers
aesthetically appealing products that create a powerful
interplay between light and movement.

glass-clad panels achieve
the goal of an elegant, eye-catching rebrand to the Odyssey ships.
