I designed and fabricated these mobile room dividers to subdivide a large studio room at CalArts.
One of the challenges of the space was that natural light only came in through one window in a corner of the room, so it was important that a sense of “lightness” was preserved. The panels are made of Polygal, which allows for some privacy but still allow light to be transmitted, and they also have a kind of “hook and eye” linkage at front and back, that allow them to be connected to each other. They have a “tripod” design, with a stabilizing strut on only one end- this allows them to be connected at any angle. All in all, they’re very versatile, lightweight, and easy to move around.
