Lumisty is…a view control film which scatters incident light from certain angles whilst transmitting incident light from all other angles. This characteristic means that the appearance of Lumisty changes from transparent to translucent depending on the angle from which it is viewed.Made from mylar, an extraordinarily strong polyester film, Lumistys unique effect is the result of its microstructure. Originally invented for ATM screens as a security concept Lumisty was discovered in 1998 by the Japanese designer of the Issey Miyake stores and an architectural product was born.Lumisty appears clear or frosted depending on your viewing angle and comes in 3 types:•Frosted when viewed straight-on, clear when viewed from either side•Clear when viewed straight-on, frosted when viewed from one side•Clear when viewed straight-on, frosted when viewed from either side
