LITITZ, Penn. – Spacekit, a modular, customizable wall art system is now available for homeowners and designers. The concept of the textured art panels, made from rice hulls, was developed by event and entertainment industry designers during the pandemic.

According to the company, the system allows for easy change and reconfigure of custom art from room to room and home to home. Homeowners and designers can select curated packages created by the Spacekit designers or customize their own through a configurator where consumers and designers can pick the colors, finishes, size, and configuration of their art pieces. 

The self-contained Spacekit framing system contains hardware hung with Command Strips from 3M. The system can also be hung with screws for the permanent installation of the textured art panels.

The system’s art panels are available in 25 cm (9.8”) or 50 cm (19.7”) frames (as well as custom sizes upon request) and can be hung in multiple configurations and layouts to create a wide variety of patterns and looks. Panels can be mounted as one large seamless art piece or spaced out with the included 2” and 4” measuring spacers. 

Made from upcycled rice hulls, components of the art panel are cut from a single sheet of this wood alternative using Spacekit’s in-house CNC machine. As a zero-waste manufacturing process, leftover material from the facility goes back to the material producers to be repurposed into new materials.
