Sample Book for Your Light-Translucent Needs IMD BASIC | Hidden Til Lit



Accurately grasping user needs

When companies or manufacturers talk about lifestyles with value, it has now become quite normal to describe “simple, stylish living spaces” as specific visions. Instead of spaces overflowing with lots of things, more and more users prefer contemporary, smart spaces where only what is necessary is around. Many of you are no doubt sensing this as well.

As noted in the previous article, end user needs for products are shifting towards more stylish and seamless designs. In particular, home electronics and smaller items are increasingly being made with UI/UX designs that show information using translucent displays, using LCDs or LED icons embedded in simple surfaces that are white, black, or silver, and can be touched directly.

To respond to this need, Nissha has used our unique technologies to come up with the Hidden Til Lit* light translucent design, combining IMD (In-mold Decoration) and light translucence (Dead Front).

Seamless expressions using Hidden Til Lit are already used in a number of products in North America and Europe, and are valuable elements in creating refined living spaces.
Even in the Japanese market, which is more conservative than overseas, there is an increasingly apparent need for this. The standard for UI in future product design is being seen as using touch operations on light translucent displays rather than physical buttons.

*Hidden Til Lit
Using Nissha’s unique light translucent designs, this technology can create in a single part an expression that unifies design and function by letting light through it. It is perfect for “dead front” usage, where characters and icons are hidden when the display is off, but become visible when the user operates the device.
