Sold at Graduate Exhibition, Summer 2015

My Japanese style room divider is a beautiful and functional piece. The Shoji paper diffuses light in a soft and luminescent way, and can be lit naturally from a window or with directional lighting. I custom made the hinges to ensure that the screen can be postioned in multiple ways. It is easy to add more panels at a later stage to account for moving home or changing position. It is perfect for screening off home office areas at the end of a day or creating a cosy sectional area in a large open plan home.
