Textile softwall is a free-standing flexible wall which may be shaped in countless curved or linear formations.
When stored compressed, the folding wall shrinks to the thickness of a book. From its condensed state, it expands to an impressive 4.5m
long, or any length between.
The moveable wall can be spontaneously arranged as a room divider and acoustic partition to absorb sound and establish privacy, or to create a striking backdrop for an event or performance. As a modular system, belonging to molo’s larger collection of paper furniture, each softwall + softblock has magnetic end panels that connect these flexible building blocks to create longer partitions and immersive, sculptural installations.
Made from layers of textile 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 to encourage responsible material use.
Recognised for elegant design and innovation, softwall is held in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.
Portable folding wall
The honeycomb geometry and soft material allows softwall to flex and curve, creating straight walls or serpentine structures. The walls flat-pack for portability and storage, expanding up to 4.5m or any length between.
The final layer of softwall + softblock is a magnetic panel that folds vertically on itself to provide stability, connects multiple walls and blocks to one another, or anchors the elements to ferrous surfaces.
White textile comes to life when light shines through its delicate pattern of translucent fibres.
Black textile softwall has an opaque sheen reminiscent of charred wood that highlights the subtle pattern of its fibres.
The textile is made from nonwoven polyethylene. It is UV stable, dust- and tear-resistant, and easily cleaned with soap and water.
Textile softwall and its paper sibling are 100% recyclable; both have been welcomed into Google Portico’s catalogue of healthy building materials.
Optional LED ribbons wind through the honeycomb cells to transform textile softwall into an expressive, luminous space partition.
Felt handle + anchor strip
A steel strip anchors the magnetic end panel of softwall to any solid surface. Pairing with a felt handle creates a sliding door evocative of shōji.
