Paper Softwall

by Molo Studio

A freestanding space partition, molo’s paper softwall room divider is a modern partition design and folding wall that has the flexibility to be shaped in any curved or linear formation. When stored compressed, the folding wall shrinks to the thickness of a book. It expands to an impressive 15′ (4.5m) long, or any length between. Made from layers of paper structured with flexible honeycomb geometry, the walls are a new building material-relinquishing notions of rigid space making in favour of sustainable design to accommodate change over time and responsible material use.

This easily moveable wall can be arranged as a room divider to absorb sound and delineate visual privacy, or to create a striking backdrop for an event or performance. As a modular system, each softwall + softblock has magnetic end panels that connect these flexible building blocks to create longer partitions and immersive, sculptural installations.
