Shoji Screens & Doors recreates the Japanese design experience in Australian homes using traditional shoji doors and screens.
Traditional Japanese architecture uses natural materials such as wood, earth and paper to create a seamless flow between the built and natural environments. Some of the key elements of Japanese design include wooden facades, thatched roofs, sunken hearths, earthen floors and elevated wooden floors in addition to sliding shoji doors.
Used by Japanese homes to create a partition within a large space, shoji doors provide privacy between spaces while still allowing diffused light to filter into adjoining rooms. A traditional shoji door is made from translucent white rice paper over a wooden frame, holding together a lattice of timber or bamboo.
Shoji doors are increasingly being integrated into Western interior design, with architects and homeowners looking for an affordable and aesthetic solution to maximise space without compromising the cooling and heating efficiency of the rooms.
Shoji Screens & Doors offers a broad range of traditional shoji screens to the Australian market, including fixed walls, sliding doors, bi-fold screens and doors, and retractable walls made using Tasmanian Oak and New Guinea Rosewood timbers from sustainable sources.
Custom made at its factory in Queensland, then hand finished and assembled to high standards, Shoji screens and doors use fibreglass panels instead of paper, providing the same benefits of paper but with a practicality and durability necessary for modern Australian living.
Shoji screens and doors are recommended for residential and commercial spaces to improve the thermal performance of a space, and reduce energy use.
Shoji Screens & Doors can be consulted during the design and planning stages of a project to get the perfect custom solution for a space.
