RICH YUNG REPORT: LED outdoor walkway by MINIMIS

CATWALK is a modular, LED-illuminated outdoor & indoor walkway system. A more dramatic way to welcome guests to your front door, restaurant, bar, casino, or café.

In daylight the modular steel and white polycarbonate structure has a clean rectilinear profile and resembles raised stepping stones over water, and acts as a clean white canvas for dappled sunlight.

At night, CATWALK is self-illuminated by low power-sipping LED lights creating a dramatic, shimmering ribbon of light with a subtle interplay of focused and diffused points of light.

Soon available with programmable full-color LED array, to cycle through the entire spectrum of over 16 million colors, or custom sequences.

Price range : $180 to $580

MINIMIS, an austin-based firm, designs and fabricates a host of luxury, modern architectural products.

Their guiding belief is inspired by Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead quote, “The [designs] were austere and simple, until one looked at them and realized what work, what complexity of method, what tension of thought had achieved the simplicity.”
