Room Dividers

Fold Room Divider

I don’t know about you, but it’s extremely rare to come across a room divider that elicits any kind of pleasant surprise, much less a wish to fork over a few hundred euros. However, truth be told, this one is pleasantly surprising, and thank goodness I’ve no room for it, otherwise my credit card would have an additional โ‚ฌ365 on its balance right now.

So, if you need to create a space within a space, just fold and unfold this lightweight room divider to create some privacy, whether it be for a temporary guest room, a home office or maybe even a semi-walk-in closet area. The soft, felt-like fabric absorbs sound and the angular shape is spot-on for any modern interior.

Lilac Screen

This bamboo room screen is a good option for when you need to create a little privacy for a certain area or camouflage a bad view without blocking out all the light. And, yes, it’s not cheap, but it’s a little less than some of the others on the market these days (namely the Ricci Room Divider at $749).

Yuki Screen

While this screen might not be within everyone’s budget, it’s absolutely beautiful. Perhaps it could be added to your inspiration file? ‘Yuki’ means ‘snowflake’ in Japanese, hence the name of this screen from Japanese design firm Nendo. Composed of 36 snowflake-like pieces that stack on top of each other, the screens can be connected to create any size you wish.

Seatbelt Wall Screen

Here’s something slightly different in the world of wall screens: this one is made from white/black seatbelts. There’s not a whole lot of info on it, nor does there need to be I suppose, other than the dimensions (38 1/2โ€œW x 38 1/2โ€œH x 3โ€œD). (However, be smart and email any questions before purchasing.)

Pirwi Piasa Room Divider

If you’re in need of a room divider and have $2500, take this piece into consideration. If you buy it, good luck remembering the name as well as the legend from which it came.

“The Piasa is part of the knitted furniture family designed by Emiliano Godoy. The pieces are joined in such a way that they can freely rotate to create different profiles. Its name comes from an Illini legend telling the story of the Piasa bird, which was as large as a calf with horns like a deer, red eyes, the body covered with green, red and black scales and a tail so long it passed around the body, over the head and between the legs.”

Note: available only in black.

Materials: maple plywood, cotton rope, Livos finish
Dimensions: 72″h x 87″w

No doubt you’ve seen this bouncing around on all the blogs, but here’s the buying info just in case you’re thinking about adding some interesting textile art to a wall.

“Clouds is an innovative, sophisticated and colourful new tile concept for the home, designed by the internationally acclaimed Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, in collaboration with Kvadrat. The tiles can be used as an installation or be hung from a wall or ceiling. It’s up to you. Clouds evolves as you add elements to it, producing a unique three-dimensional effect, coating architecture in a fluid yet chaotic way.”

The tiles are made of one element and are attached by special rubber bands.

Modular Mobile Plant Wall

Greenworks modular mobile plant wall at ICFF was definitely one of my favorite new products to hit the marketplace. Super lush plants thrive on a self-automated watering system, making for easy care in your home or office. (Plants are not included in the price listed; choice of plants are bought locally and customized to fit each customer.)

Because of the density of plants this wall is a health-bringing and superior alternative to traditional pots that are common at offices and in other public spaces. The intense growing allowed by this plantwall system gives the impression of a dynamic and vidid surrounding, a company caring for their employees or a prosperous business. The integrated self-automated watering and nutrition system makes the plantwall very easy to maintain.

Developed by Lisa Wacklin and Per Berglund

$2,800.00 per module, Buy it at Greenworks.
(With plants, the estimated total price is around $4,000 or $5,000.)

Bamboo Screen 6′

Not a bad price for such a big screen…I kind of like the top edge too, gives some movement to an otherwise static object.

“6′ tall Bamboo screen with scalloped top edge. Perfectly versatile in almost any setting. Works great as a screen, room divider, or just an attractive accent. Please note these screens are made of natural bamboo and are subject so some irregularities in the finish and surface. 72″H x 96″L overall”

Molo Soft Wall

The Molo Soft Wall is now 50 % off (as of Oct 2, 2007).

“Pioneering inventive and environmentally sound applications for novel materials, Todd MacAllen and Stephanie Forsythe have molded Tyvek (a white polyethylene fiber-based sheet material made by DuPontTM ) into a modular Softwall. Few partitions can transform space with such visual delicacy and material strength. The partition opens up to 20 feet, employing a simple but robust accordion pleat that retracts as easily as it opens. Designed to be freestanding, the Softwall should be arranged with gentle curves for stability. It has a subtle translucence that allows silhouettes of passing forms to sift through. Spot-cleanable and virtually indestructible, the Wall is suitable for domestic and office use.

This item is flammable and is not intended for high traffic public spaces.”

Room Dviders

These Room Dviders are a great way to “multipurpose” a space. (If you will allow me to use an adjective as a verb.)

If you choose, you can also adorn the room dividers with the vinyl stickers that are so popular with the kids these days.

sticks space divider

Talk about a creative space divider solution…this one takes the cake as far as I’m concerned. (Does anybody else think the picture’s kinda creepy though?)

“sticks is a conceptual space divider that allows you to be as creative as possible within an area. based on modules 23.6″ x 11.8″ and 19.7″ x 9.8″, the sticks can be used as a independently or as a grouping. use of fiberglass or wooden sticks allow color variations, while density permits different effects.”

Coil Floor Screen

For just under $300, I’d say this floor screen is quite a find. It’ll roll right up for storage, and can bend to whatever way you want it.

“Made with tidy, vertical strips of handsome bamboo, it coils and uncoils to create a wave shape that stands on its own.”
