Custom Kumiko Pattern

We're working on a set of shoji that need to span 209" of doorway and wall space where each section is a different width. The kumiko pattern our client choose needed to be customized to look pleasing across that many differently proportioned shoji.

The first image is from inside the room. The fixed shoji are represented with lighter frames. The one large fixed shoji panel will form a pocket that the three sliding shoji store behind.

Here's what that wall of shoji will look like from the other side.

And here's the stack of kumiko frames piling up. The frames are resting against kumiko for a different job, I like the way they look all stacked up without the laminated paper installed.
