The concept for a temporary installation of a privacy screen inside a Brooklyn loft takes inspiration from origami. From ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”, it is the art of transformation of a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. The challenge of this project was to build a mezzanine to gain space for an extra room without enclosing the new space with traditional walls. Given the east exposure, the wooden screen acts as a brise-soleil. In the morning it will cast shadows on the opposite white wall, adding a new dimension to the space.
