softwall + softblock modular system
softwall + softblock modular system is a flexible freestanding partition system that can expand and contract to freely shape more intimate spaces within larger open areas. The cellular structure of softwall + softblock serves to dampen sound while translucent or opaque versions sculpt the light of a space. Recognized for its elegant innovation, softwall + softblock is a part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

Each colour + material changes the way softwall or softblock exists in space. textile softwall + softblock is available in translucent white and opaque black. White textile softwall + softblock comes to life when light transmits through its delicate pattern of translucent fibres and pleats.

Black textile softwall + softblock is dyed with a UV resistant bamboo charcoal ink, lending the material a velvety opaque sheen reminiscent of charred wood.

A stiff robust unbleached paper, it is 100% recyclable and made from 50% recycled fibre. It is available in a natural warm earthy brown and a dyed bamboo charcoal black.
