Kengo Kuma and his unique ability to rescue and reinterpret the traditional spaces and craft techniques of Japanese culture have been the main source of inspiration for the new collection designed by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales, PARTITION WALLS. The modular pieces of wood that cover the terrace of the library of the University of Tokyo, which are the work of the Japanese architect, sculpt a unique outdoor volume and serve as a reference for this staging designed by GANDIABLASCO.
The light and natural character of the wood slats and bamboo canes is perceived both in the organic aspect of the architecture and in the design elements of the proposal. These elements filter the light and generate transparency, light and shadow, seeking to create work spaces and lounge spaces divided into semi-private rooms. The PARTITION WALLS designs embrace without enclosing each area in a flexible, integrated and creative way, adapting to the needs of each moment without sacrificing space or natural light.
The collection includes four models in different finishes, all available in three sizes and made with machined aluminium profiles suitable for outdoor use: the DNA ALUMINIUM PARTITION WALL in anodized or thermo-lacquered, the DNA TEAK PARTITION WALL, the SCREEN PARTITION WALL (with a Soltis plastic fabric screen) and the DNA FAUX WOOD ALUMINIUM PARTITION WALL, which comes in Golden oak or teak in the horizontal bar pattern.
