Material:
Wood, Paint
Dimensions :
Overall dimension of a standing 3 panel screen is approximately 72”x 36”x 8”. Individual panels are 72” x 15.5” x 4”

“Sail” was commissioned by a private client who requested a folding room screen. The panels on the prototype have been fabricated out of wood using a bent lamination technique. The faces of the panels have a wood veneer applied over a bent plywood core.

What makes “Sail” Interesting is the fact that the panels’ curved surfaces create an interesting three dimensional form when unfolded that can be altered by slightly shifting the arrangement of the individual panels or simply by the change of natural light in a room over the course of a day, all the while retaining the ability to be folded flat for storage or transportation.
